Synopsis: Ronnie, Fleur, and Claude are the LBD—Les Bambinos Dangereuses. These best friends are hip, feisty, and ready for the Astlebury Music Festival, a weekend of music, dancing, and guy watching. Except for one thing -- their fun-hating, ogre parents won't let them go. To save their social lives the girls come up with a brilliant plan. They'll put on a concert of their own, featuring their school's finest talent (and hottest guys). But staging a music festival isn't easy, especially when the LBD's sworn enemy, Panama Goodyear, is the headline act. Panama threatens to steal the spotlight as well as Ronnie's crush, Jimi. It's up to the LBD to use their sass, class, and humor to make Blackwell Live a huge success, complete with post-concert snogging and all. With LBD in charge—it's not just a girl thing; it's the best thing! Barred by their overprotective parents from attending a rock music festival, fourteen-year-olds Ronnie, Fleur, and Claude, also known as "Les Bambinos Dangereuses," decide to stage their own music festival at Blackwell School.
