review 1: This is what I call a fluffy read. It was enjoyable in the moment, but fairly forgettable and didn't require too much thought. I wasn't in marching band in high school, but my best friend was, and what the main character goes through her first year in marching band seems completely authentic. I appreciated the journey Elsie went on during the book, but struggled to actually like her as a character. Most of the time I wanted to smack her upside the head and shout "figure it out, already!" The supporting characters (except her parents, who seemed ridiculously overbearing) were much more interesting than Elsie. A good book for middle grade girls who like realistic fiction with a bit of romance thrown in and who are interested in the arts.
review 2: So this book se
... moreemed good. When I found it. I love the trumpet and I'm in marching band so I thought I could at least relate to this book a tiny bit. Wrong again. Elsie has a issue. With being social and doing new things. She's also to worried about one-upping her dad and getting into Shinning Birches as a freshman (exclusive band program). So I guess she has a lot on her plate but I think so bit off more than she can chew. Throughout the whole book she is a selfish brat and all the problems come from that. Friend problems, family problems, band problems. How many problems can you have!? There was a good plot, a bad main character and a fun topic (in my opinion). It's an ok book. Definitely wouldn't recommend reading it, just look up a summary or something. P.S. Why did Erin Dionne use so many slashes in her book? Use and! less
