** spoiler alert ** Once again Jennifer Echols has written a wonderful book.I have been waiting so many ages to read Major Crush and I'm thrilled to say that it was a great romantic comedy.The book had me gasping from shock and constantly laughing.My favorite character from the story was Mr.Rush,who was the school band director.Just by reading Major Crush I was brought to reminisce of when I was in a school band,during my middle school years.I can even say that I attended band camp for at least two years.

The book starts out with a girl name,Virginia who was chosen as a co-drum major.She also happens to have to share the same position with another co-drum major named Drew.Once they both find out that they have to share the same job they are constantly bickering with each other.At the same time Virginia has quite a crush on Drew.Through out the entire book band members are giving her a difficult time because they want Drew to be the only drum major.In addition,Drew's girlfriend Cacey is incessantly making up rumors about Virginia.Next, Mr.Rush, the band director helps Drew and Virginia patch up their differences by advising them to open up to one another.Drew seemed like a jerk in the beginning of the book,but it's because his father has him under a lot of pressure and he has family promblems.It turns out that his mother is pregnant at the age of 42,which is causing her some health problems.Also his family is having financial problems.His father tells Drew that he won't be able to go to college unless he gets a scholarship since the fact that his mother is expecting twins has caused him not to have his college fund.As the story progresses Virginia and Drew's attraction to each other intensifies.Later on one finds out that Virginia and her father have a strained relationship for the reason that she can not seem to forgive her fater for cheating on her mother.After that Virginia get angry with Drew because she thinks that he began a rumor about her father having an affair.The truth about this matter is that the evil twins named Cacey and Tracey started the rumor since their mother,Lureen had an affair with Virginia's father.Some how this is the reason why the twins despise Virginia.From then on Drew gives up his position as co-drum major because he finds out that the job belonged to Virginia in the first place.This complicates things with them once they are a couple.Furthermore the truth unravels about the twins revenage toward Virginia and she figures out that Drew did not spread the rumor regarding her father's affair.Drew returns to his position as co-drum major and they win many awards at a band event.Finally, Virginia and Drew get back together as a couple.
