Audition & Subtraction by Amy Fellner Dominy

Best friends Tatum and Lori are used to doing everything together—including a clarinet/flute duet for District Honor Band auditions. But all that changes when Michael transfers to their middle school, and into their band. Suddenly, not only is he competing for Tatum’s spot on stage, but he’s stealing Lori, too. Tatum doesn’t like change no matter its form: not with her good friend Aaron, who seems to believe her fib that they’re secretly boyfriend and girlfriend. And not with her mom either, who, to cope with a separation from her dad, is performing in community theater, of all things! Amy Fellner Dominy composes an equally heartwarming and hilarious story of how holding tight to the status quo can mean missing out on the future—and how oftentimes the best way to move forward is by going solo.

AUDITION AND SUBTRACTION is like a favorite boyfriend on a cool afternoon; something you want to cozy up with and never let go. Her middle grade voice carries me back to the days of marching bands, first loves, and discovering the world isn't always the wonderful place you thought it should be. The sweet and honest story kept me up way past my bedtime because, like that first boyfriend I talked all hours on the phone with, I wasn't ready to say goodnight. It was a quick read that had me nodding my head in empathy, and laughing more times than I could count. A&S is one of the best reads I've had this year!

AUDITION & SUBTRACTION is a charming story about growing up to which anyone can relate. Witty, engaging, heartfelt and realistic, this is a story about the struggle to transition from having best girlfriends to having best girlfriends and boyfriends. A&S is the perfect blend of humor, honesty and having the courage to believe in yourself.

This book is a great read! My daughter and I each read it in just one night. It is a great Tween book! It is amazingly accurate, Amy remembered a lot more about her Tween years than I did. It was such a treat to revisit them. I thought it would be a straight forward book, which I would have enjoyed, but there are so many twists and turns in the book, each chapter was better than the one before!
