did not like it
bookshelves: young-adult, hated, 2008

I read this book because it had to do with marching bands, even though the plot sounded pretty dumb - two drum majors don't get along but are forced to work together and... gasp... discover they're into each other!!! Well, the book was bad. Probably every chapter had something to snicker about or make fun of, and the characters weren't even fully developed. I kept reading because it was so bad it was almost entertaining (plus, it was a quick read, so it wasn't like I wasted a lot of time on it). There were really cheesy scenes where the band director sits the two drum majors down and forces them to talk to each other and to him - not cheesy because it needed to happen, but cheesy in the way it DID happen; the relationship between the drum majors and the band director was very very odd, and I think the director's character was supposed to be funny, but it just came out very forced. The whole "I like the other drum major!!" plot was pretty forced too, what with it magically happening even with some pretty awful things going down between them and the rest of the band. So, so, tacky. What a disappointment. But it made for some good laughs...
