Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-A recent graduate of a small-town Texas high school, Miranda has her eyes set on college in Austin. When Denny, her immature boyfriend, proposes marriage, she surprises him by opting to follow her plan. She rooms off campus with two unconventional older students and, as a lark, answers an ad to take drum lessons from Paul, a handsome college dropout and low-key womanizer. As Miranda builds her confidence and skill at playing the drums, she develops a crush on him before she realizes his inability to make commitments. When she auditions successfully to fill in for the regular drummer in an all-male band, Adam, the bassist, is the only member of the group to befriend her, and they gradually fall in love. Miranda has challenges along the way, including the return of the original drummer and Adam's jealousy when Denny shows up and tries to win her back. The narrative is fast paced, the characters are vividly etched, and the descriptions of the music scene are believable. A romance with a beat and a bounce, this is a cut above the average.-Jack Forman, Mesa College Library, San Diego Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    A must read!

    I love that someone finally wrote about a girl who plays the drums. You don't hear about girls playing the drums very often. At least not where I'm from. Krulik has captured the passion that band members feel when playing an amazing piece of music.

    I Also Recommend:

    After graduating high school Miranda starts college and finds her calling: playing drums.

    She joins a band that's looking for a temporary replacement till their original drummer returns. Miranda soon gets the hang of not only college but playing in a band, getting to know her roommates and band mates. That is until someone from her past makes a return, having Miranda question her old life vs. her new life. This is another good read I really liked. Cute ending!!!!

    as good as they get...

    this book was really good, I liked it so much I finished it in one night. I live in a small town so I know how the character felt. This story goes to show that 'chicks' can rock just as hard as the guys..

    LOVED IT SOOOO MUCH!!

    I have to admit, though, I wasn't at first sure if I was going to like it. I thought that she might be kind of stuck up for 'trying to break out of her smalll-town shell'. (I live in a small town). But I decided to get it anyway. Boy, was I wrong. She isn't nesscessarily 'dying' to change, it just kind of happens. Which I think is totally GREAT. If you're like me and a little more than a little skeptical, GET IT ANYWAY, it's great.

    Hope there's a sequel

    This book was great. I loved that it showed that you should never change yourself for a guy no matter what.

    True love has a rhythm all its own.

    According to the back of the book: SHE BANGS! SHE BANGS! Miranda was the quiet type...until she moved to Austin. Home of the hippest college rock bands, Austin, Texas, is a scene. And Miranda is dying to break out of her small-town shell. So she decides to do something totally un-Miranda: learn to play the drums. When crashing the cymbals, the girl's a wild child! Plus there's a perk to her new college gig: a cute bass player. Unfortunately Mr. Bass Man isn't exactly looking for love. Can this rocker chick change his tune? Or does finding her own rhythm mean sacrificing true love?
