Review: This delightful "growing up" story is set within the social confines of the high school band which nine grader Elsie must join in her quest to gain admittance to a prestigious summer camp. Learning a new instrument, making/losing/regaining friends, and finding a first boyfriend make up just some of the experience the reader will learn from along with Elsie. A nicely-written book with a lot of heart.
