Summary

Summary

Band Geeks unite in this fresh new middle-grade series by debut author (and former band director) Michelle Schusterman!

The band's bake-sale fund-raiser pits the sections against each other, and Holly is positive the brass section will win. After all, the two most competitive kids in band are Holly and Natasha. When Holly hears a rumor that Aaron Cook is going to ask her to the winter dance, she's ecstatic. So when Aaron asks Natasha to the dance, Holly thinks she can't feel much worse. When a small disaster sets the brass section way behind in the band's bake sale, Holly gets a brilliant idea that's guaranteed to help them win--and with a little good fortune, it might save Holly's friendship with Natasha, too!


Author Notes

Michelle Schusterman is a former band director and forever band geek, dating back to when she first picked up a pair of drumsticks in the sixth grade. Now Michelle writes books, screenplays, and music. She lives in New York City with her husband (and band mate) and their chocolate lab (who is more of a vocalist).
