"I'm going to treasure this book forever. I know I'm going to enjoy it once I'm out of high school too! Thank you so much for writing this! I needed something to 'bring me back' to high school band when I'm finished with it. I have now found the perfect thing."
"I loved the book! And I really do hate to read now a days, so that's saying a lot in itself. I could relate to pretty much everything in the book - I just bought the second novel in the series, and I'm so excited to start!"
From the Author
Hello, Courtney here, and before you purchase any of my books - I encourage you to download or read a sample first. Even though my novels are priced on the lower end of the spectrum, I 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 adventures of Lucy Karate and will want to follow her senior season in A Fine Line,
or the continuing adventures of the Forrest Hills drumline in Keeping in Line
and the exciting conclusion of the series, The Line Up
If you want to see a cameo from Lucy, check out my independent YA marching novel Confessions of a Teenage Band Geek
As a side note, The Line 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.
Keep marching! ~CB
