Our customer reviews

If you're thinking that MAJOR CRUSH is another one of those "one time, at band camp" stories, then you're sorely mistaken! I have to say that this is one of the best, not to mention funniest, young adult romance stories I've read this year. Sixteen-year-old Virginia Sauter has just gotten the job as co-drum major of the high school marching band. A position she just happens to share with her crush-of-a-lifetime, Drew Morrow. Having given up her life on the beauty pageant circle, fashionista Virginia has given way to manly band uniforms, orthopedic shoes, and a nose stud. She knows she's not the prettiest, or most popular, girl in school, and now that she's working closely with Drew--and if the first game of the season is any proof of the matter, failing miserably--she's at the center of jealous girlfriends and rude gossips. It seems that Drew isn't enjoying working with Virginia, either. She knows he's not happy about their co-drum major status; after all, Drew's family has held the position--alone--for a long, long time. So when he's not harping at her about not arguing in public, or the fact that he won't stoop to her "juvenile" level, he's giving off signals that Virginia just can't interpret. When it becomes obvious (sort of), that Drew just might be crushing on Virginia as hard as she is on him, things really start to get interesting. As the two drum majors struggle to work together and create a band that the school, and the band instructor, can be proud of, they'll have to deal with their attraction in a way that hopefully won't create major fireworks. MAJOR CRUSH is a quick, fun read that anyone can enjoy. It's obvious that Ms. Echols herself loves the marching band, and even though I never got to experience any of those "one time, at band camp" stories myself, I truly enjoyed seeing it through Virginia and Drew's eyes. With well-developed characters, fresh dialogue, and a great cast of supporting characters, MAJOR CRUSH is one story you don't want to miss.show more
