I read this book for the English Festival for my school. Even though I found the beginning of the book to be rather rigid, I think it is a very good book. I personally was cheering on the main character the entire way, feeling the same emotions that he was. I think that if you are studying music in any form, you will relate to the story even more. It would help you to understand the significance of some of the storyline. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll end it here.
