College Application

Name: Ellie Snow

Age: 18

Why do you want to attend Covington?

Well, the truth is I don't really know what I want. My plan was to attend State, close to my family, friends, and (slightly clingy) boyfriend and become a high school band director like I always dreamed. But when I visited your campus, I liked everything about it—especially Alex, the cool girl who showed me around. So now I have to decide: stick with what I know? Or go to a school far away with zero marching bands . . . but one Alex and tons of new possibilities?

Sound-off praise for Band Geek Love:

"[Ellie is] refreshingly real and honest."—KLIATT

"Hits all of the right notes."—Little Willow,

"A memorable cast of characters that jump off the page."—SLJTeen

I got through about 7-10 pages and I had enough. The first book was okay. I have no idea why I tried to read this book. I mostly stopped because of how annoying Ellie was. Also, I felt that she lacked musical knowledge and years of playing. I don't even know why she was 1st chair or why she got the solo. This is speaking from years of experience (on flute in jazz and concert band) and solos. This book sucks DO NOT read it!!!!!!!!!!!
