I Heart Band! by Michelle Schusterman - - ADVISABLE

Schusterman, Michelle I Heart Band! 188 pgs. Penguin Group, 2014. $$6.99.  Language: PG (15 swears - all diety) Violence: G; Mature Content: G.  

7th grader Holly has been practicing her French Horn all summer to be ready for 8th grade advanced band class. But her best friend Julia went to band camp this summer and has made a new friend, Natasha,  who also plays the French Horn.  It’s not enough that she’s stolen her friend, but now Natasha is first chair.  What promised to be an exciting year is turning out terribly and its all Natasha’s fault.  

This new series is full of teen drama, but is a great clean teen read.  The author is apparently a band geek, it shows and is appreciated.  The first in a series (so far there are 4) available in paperback only, this would also make a fun stocking stuffer or birthday gift as well as a recommended read.  EL MS - - ADVISABLE  Lisa Librarian
