Editorial Reviews

Review

"I'm planning to be a band geek, and I can really relate to Julia.  She has a sarcastic, entertaining, likeable relatable voice (as do all your other characters). Great job!"

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 Julia McCoy.  If you do, you might want to check out my other marching novels, including, The Line, 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.

Keep marching!  ~CB

This is a young adult book that centers around a character, Julia McCoy, who lived in California and was a drummer for a band with her friends.
One day, close to the end of her sophomore year of high school, her parents tell her they are moving across the country to Georgia. Julia isn't happy about the move, but what can she really do about it? After the move occurs, as school approaches, she goes to register for her classes. As she's registering, she's asked if there is anything she's interested in for classes or extra cirriculars.
Julia admits that she's a set drummer. She's convinced to sign up for band and goes to meet the director. As he learns that she's a set drummer, he has her audition. They offer her a late placement on the marching band. And she accepts.
You should know, Julia's never been in band. So you definitely get a perspective of what marching band is like, from a newbie's point of view. (I myself was never in band or even marching band....but I have several friends that were, so this was not a new point for me.)
Julia is the only girl playing tenors on the drumline. In her section, it seems that the leader of the section, Denny, likes her. During band camp, they become a couple when he bids for her in an auction and wins.
Once school officially starts up, Julia has to deal with band, her relationship with Denny, teaching drumset lessons, and I forgot to mention...she's also in a band, Beans and Cornbread. (Interesting name for a band, right?!) AND she has to deal with Denny's ex, Liberty Jensen, who is the most popular girl in school and of course, your typical cheerleader. But, she manages to work all those things out and the rivalry between Julia and Liberty is pretty interesting.

Yes, I had to endure the talk of "broad shoulders" and dreamy eyes, but this is a cute story about a girl in a competitive drumline in GA...being a drummer, band director, and drum corps alum, (not to mention a tenor player), I really loved all the accuracy about equipment, rehearsals, and other things associated with being in band for millions of kids throughout the nation. This isn't "Drumline" the movie. And that IS A GOOD THING! The director of that movie said he didn't do a traditional marching band story because it would be boring. Ms. Brandt has ABSOLUTELY proven him wrong. I'll be checking out the other books, stat!

I would have to say that this is one of those rare gems that brings you back to when you were in high school. As a former "band geek" who did band camp and all that is involved with band I would have to say I really appreciated this book. I would highly recommend this book for someone who is just trying to read something sweet and innocent.

I stumbled on this hidden gem while browsing and thought why not? Julia is a bad ass drummer to bad she is moving and has to say good buy to her friends and band.

Thankfully she can join the school band at her new school, get to meet new people and maybe even get a new boyfriend. The reason I loved Julia so much is that she was brave and funny and she never backs down from a challenge, I loved how hard she worked to reach her goals. She's the kind off girl I would like to have been friends with.

This book was a good read that was easy to lose yourself in for a few hours. Julia is a strong character and I love the way she is portrayed. I love the chemistry between her and Denny. Ms. Brandt did a great job breaking the stereo types of the "band geek". I recommend reading this.
