Manitoba Young Readers Choice Award finalist, 2013
Adam's band, Sick on a Snow Day, is challenged by more than just an unusual name. Adam is mistakenly accused of cheating on a test and must maintain a clean record and B-average if he wants to stay in the band. When lead singer Daniela Olafson gets hit with stage fright at the last minute, Adam creates her alter-ego, Olaf Danielson, the Swedish exchange student who becomes an instant tween sensation. But one kid holds the key to both Adam's and Daniela's fates, is Adam's nemesis, the dorky Eldrick Hooperberg. And all he wants in return for his cooperation is to be a part of Sick on a Snow Day.
View Review text
"[I]n the great tradition of middle-grade comic fiction; filled with mix-ups, coincidences, hyperbole, colourful characters, and a dash of familial angst, The Bedmas Conspiracy
does a satisfying job of keeping interest up and appealing to kids' sense of their importance in the world."
— CM Magazine
"This is a fun book for younger readers with plenty of entertaining characters and moments in the book. Rock and roll, stage fright, and teen pressure all make for a book younger readers can relate to."
