Band Geek Love by Josie Bloss-Tween-Teen

Rating: 5/5 Stars

About the Book: Ellie Snow is a band geek-and proud of it. She's finally a senior, she's the trumpet section leader, and she's going to rock her solo at the end of band camp performance. She wasn't expecting him to be there and catch her eye in the crowd-and make her totally mess up. On top of her very embarassing performance, the mysterious cute guy from the crowd is a new student at school-and joining her trumpet section. If Ellie was any other girl, she might know how to deal with this. But ever since Ellie had her heart terribly broken her freshman year, she's given up on boys. Ellie likes everything perfect and in her control-but cute Conner is just too distracting and she's losing focus. When Ellie's former crush and the boy responsible for breaking her heart returns, Ellie finds herself in the middle of some serious band geek love.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: This book was a lot of fun. Band geek or not, if you're a fan of romantic comedies, you'll enjoy reading about Ellie and her various mishaps. Ellie is a great main character-she's strong, she's a control freak, and she's a band geek! A sequel is in the works and I'm looking forward to reading more from this debut author.
