Summary
The Lord family live in the worst house on the best street. It might have been different if Suzi Lord's rock 'n' roll parents, Strum and Miss Katy, hadn't stumbled on their way to stardom but after one hit single in Finland, it's been Lentil Slop Thing for dinner ever since. But life is about to get a lot more interesting at 92 Melody Street. Renting out their spare room on ZedBedZ seemed like a good idea but with the ghost of a grumpy drummer, a long-lost grandfather as their first guest, angry opposition from a residents action group, AND a broken leg in the first practice match of the soccer season, Suzi ain't havin' much of a rockin' good time. Then she dares to pick up a set of drum sticks and things really get wild
Summary
The Lord family live in the worst house on the best street. It might have been different if Suzi Lord's rock n roll parents, Strum and Miss Katy, hadn't stumbled on their way to stardom but after one hit single in Finland, it's been lentils for dinner ever since. Despite all that, Suzi's older sister Janis is desperate to get the money to go on the school trip to France, so she takes matters into her own hands by renting out the spare room on ZedBedZ. But Suzi discovers that the spare room already has an occupant - the ghost of the band's dead drummer whose rhythmic skills might still be required. Life on Melody Street never seems that harmonious, however. There's the broken leg that shatters Suzi's soccer dreams, a friend who needs a new band, a long-lost grandfather, the music mad Chinese student next door and some shady real estate deals going down. With the driving beat of a rock anthem, the heart of a country ballad, and the contemporary feel of the latest hip-hop hit, Lords of Melody is about people overcoming their differences in order to cooperate, be creative, to make music together.
