The whole reason I picked up this book in the first place was because I am a band geek myself (by choice, not accidentally) and I couldn't help but be interested. I found the representation of high school marching band in this book to be pretty accurate which made me happy. It brought back memories of the ups and downs of my own high school band. The only drawback I came upon was Elsie's attitude until the end. There were parts where I really wanted to knock some sense into her for how stupid she was being. Even so, I enjoyed the plot and the outcome of the book made me smile.
