Overview

Notes from an Accidental Band Geek by Erin Dionne

Elsie Wyatt is a born French horn player, just like her father and her grandfather before her. In order to qualify for the prestigious summer music camp of her dreams, she must expand her musical horizons and join—gasp!—the marching band. There are no French horns in marching band, but there are some very cute boys. Elsie is not so sure she'll survive, but the new friends she's making and the actual fun she's having force her to question her dad's expectations and her own musical priorities.

This book was really good, but kind of slow for me ( i was flipping through the pages to find out about elsie and henry!) I'm in band too and i could really relate to most of the book but it was really specific so it might've been hard for people who dont know alot about music to read it. oh yeah, and about the band ( spoiler!) playing at the thanksgiving parade.... it was sort of rushed you know? dont you have to practice YEARS for that? And it was kind of ridiculous when Elsie had that "temper tantrum"..... But the book was pretty good besides all that.
