Penny | 19 comments This is a 1950s or 1960s book about a girl who plays cello and goes to music camp. One of the arrogant older boys calls her "babe in the woods."

This was actually a two or three book series. There's another one where she's home and playing in a trio with two guys named Dave and Mel.

Very cool nostalgic YA series I would love to find...

thanks!

Penny | 19 comments I decided to bump this up just once, since there were a lot of new postings right after mine. I'll let it die if I don't have any luck the second time around, but I wanted to give it one more chance.

Thanks!

Krista the Krazy Kataloguer (KristatheKrazyKataloguer) | 104 comments White in the Moon by Gretchen Sprague (c1968)? Here's the plot summary from Children's Literature Comprehensive Database: "A girl who has been playing the cello for eight years spends the summer before her first year in college at music camp, where she must master a new style of using her bow hand, examine her dedication to music, and deal with relationships with an extremely talented older boy, a Negro cabin mate, and a smitten younger boy who also plays the cello."
