This book reads like a bad made-for-tv movie and was a complete waste of time. Spencer's grammatically shaky, over-emotional and adjective-laden prose made the book a pain to navigate and nearly impossible to enjoy, while her complete inability to draw a realistic human character forced the story into cliche after cliche. Her teenagers were wooden, drenched with sickly sweet kindness and school spirit and completely lacking any normal adolescent characteristics; her adults were erratic, frenzied and drawn without an ounce of realism.I picked up this book at a used book sale and thought the story might have some interesting twists - there were none. I thought the plight of the characters, especially the principal's wife Claire, might resonate in some way - it did not. I suppose if nothing else, Home Song did evoke strong feelings in me as a reader: I was so angry with each of the characters and so bored by the non-existent plot that I couldn't wait to finish the book, review it and shelve it on the 'never to be touched again' pile. Should be zero stars.

I bought this book for one reason which is that I really enjoyed the movie and when It was a book a book I knew I really needed to read the book. I really enjoyed reading it and once you start the book you cannot let it go. It's that good.

I thought this book was a dud; the adult characters were fine and the dilemmas were handled well, but the teenagers seemed like transplants from the 1950s. I was a teenager in the early 1990s when the book was set, and no girl I knew had Rod Stewart posters on her wall. The teens here are so squeaky clean (admittedly, they are the principal's kids) that Chelsea's goofy little fling (and quick return to good girl) is utterly predictable. Not one of my favorite Spencer titles.

This is another great book by LaVyrle Spencer. She is such a talented writer. She makes the characters seem so real. This is a book that is hard to put down once you start reading it. Loved it!
