"Lucy is back and ready for more adventures! Courtney does a great job reminding us that there are no sequels in marching band; it is one continuing story where characters move in and out. Fans of The Line
will love the return of old characters, along with plenty of new ones in Lucy's senior year."
"Hey I really love your work! I just got snare for winter percussion and I had bass drum for marching band. Everything you write about is so true. I love knowing that someone else has lived through this! Thanks for finally putting our stories bout GIRLS on drum line!"
"Insightful and refreshing, Ms. Brandt has created an astonishing reality that band members know well. While those of us who have been there don't need help picturing what it's like, A Fine Line
draws the marching world in such incredible detail that even non-band members will have no trouble following her!"
From the Author
Hello, Courtney here, and before you purchase any of my books - I encourage you to download or read a sample first. know your money (and time!) are precious things, so please try before you buy. If you prefer not to, no worries - there are lots of wonderful YA books in circulation!
I hope you do enjoy the introduction of Bronwyn Flueger and will want to follow her sophomore season in the continuing adventures of the Forrest Hills drumline in Keeping in Line
and the exciting conclusion of the series, The Line Up
As a side note, The Line series may hit the right notes for some, but for others in search of a book filled with more specific details about the day to day minutiae of a season in marching band, I encourage you to write your own! My book has always been intended as a love story with the inner workings of a competitive marching band and drumline as the backdrop for that narrative. Furthermore, I definitely appreciate your feedback. While I am busy working on original adult novels at the moment, I do like to update the entire Line series from time to time - your notes help.
This book in the series is the one I think would make the best film. In fact, I've thought of it so much as a movie, I've already written the screenplay. To me, marching band is a rich visual and musical experience and was made for the big screen. I hope you'll check it out and agree!
I'm even more pleased to announce that all of my novels are now available for Kindle. If you would like to purchase a digital copy of any of the books in the series!
