Its starting to p*ss me off cause I have a nice car and its squealing. I'm sure its the rear brake drums cause my mom and friend said that's where it sounds like its coming from. it only squeals when I press on the brake with a certain pressure. its a 2008 dodge avenger. I'm going to replace the rear brake shoes with a ceramic shoe. Has anyone had success by doing this? What do you all think it could be?

It could be dirt on the brakes if they are not worn out. Spray some brake cleaner on the rotors or drums. (I'M surprised that a 08 has drums) Usually the front wear out before the rear brakes.
Ceramic brakes are kind of a gamble. They must fit perfectly otherwise the wheel & brakes will got too hot & might cause trouble. Hopefully the mechanic will be honest with you if the ceramic brakes are a perfect fit.
I usually stick with what came with the car. The manufacturer/engineer decided on those brakes for a reason.0
