When a tire fire causes a punk rock band to take a detour to Starvation Lake, the fourth-grade students talk them into playing at the school fund raiser.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
It was another perfectly awful day in Starvation Lake. The town was lost in a swirl of snow. Except for the snowplow, the streets were deserted, but the single traffic light continued to blink red and green.

Outside town, the lake was a white circle of ice. It was frozen six months of the year. Even when it finally thawed, it wasn't much of a lake. In a dry year, it was a swamp. In a rainy year, the only fish anyone could catch were blue gills, which didn't need a lot of water to thrash around in.

Back Cover:
Starvation Lake Elementary is just a regular school...except that it's due north by an icy lake, lost in a swirl of snow most of the time. And it lacks one thing most schools have - a decent library. The fourth grade is putting on a fund-raiser, but it seems sure to fail. Can four strangers in a detoured van save the show?
