A shout-out to anyone in marching band

Notes from an Accidental Band Geek by Erin Dionne is the book for you! Follow Elsie Wyatt and her French horn on her journey to get into Shining Birches—THE MOST prestigious orchestra summer camp in the greater Boston area.

But to qualify for the audition, Elsie will have to do something she’s never dreamed of before: Join the high school marching band. Will she be able to survive the horror of playing a new instrument, the unlucky (or should we say “clucky”) embarrassments and the polyester uniforms? And will she maybe, just maybe, learn to love her new, awkward marching band family?

Find out in this funny, easy-to-get-into book. Learn valuable lessons alongside Elsie and let yourself develop with her too—not just as a musician, but as a high school girl just trying to fulfill her dreams and live her life.
Also, check out Erin Dionne’s other books: Models Don’t Eat Chocolate Cookies and The Total Tragedy of a Girl Named Hamlet!

Notes from an Accidental Band Geek hits shelves Sept. 1. Be sure to pick up a copy, then come back and let us know your thoughts.
