A CROOKED KIND OF PERFECT by Linda Urban

Zoe Elias has big musical dreams.  As soon as she gets a glossy baby grand piano, she will be on her way to Carnegie Hall.  Trouble is, what Zoe gets is a wood-grained, vinyl-seated, wheeze-bag organ.  Yet when she enters the annual Perform-O-Rama organ competition, Zoe finds that life is full of surprises–and that perfection may be even better when it’s just a little off center.  This wise and witty book about families and friendships is entertaining and a delight to read.
