Told in engaging first person, Confessions of a Teenage Band Geek is not your typical YA story. Protagonist Julia McCoy’s plans for an amazing junior year suddenly shift when her parents announce they are moving from SoCal to Atlanta, GA. Resilient and optimistic Julia launches herself into her new life and starts by joining the marching band. A talented drum set player, the blonde proves herself as an intense percussionist and is awarded a spot in the tenor section, a subsection of Westlake high school’s competitive drumline. In addition, Julia joins a local rock band, Beans and Cornbread, and begins teaching drum set lessons.
Events in the fast paced novel work around band camp, Beans and Cornbread's first show, an 'impacting' first marching band competition, sneaky cheerleading exes and an exciting Homecoming week. Fans of Courtney Brandt's Line series will be happy to see cameos from previous characters make appearances.
Ms. Brandt is proud to present her complete 4 book YA marching band series including The Line, A Fine Line, Keeping in Line, and The Line Up. Courtney enjoys bringing a fictional voice to band geeks all over the world and hopes to one day see her books adapted to screen.
Ms. Brandt is also pleased to announce the publication of a two new standalone books, Confessions of a Teenage Band Geek and Major Pain.read more
