Review: Guitar Notes by Mary Amato

Haiku review!

Tripp and Lyla are
at odds (and evens) over
their love of music.

Guitar Notes by Mary Amato was a quick, easy read, but it was also really GOOD.

Tripp is an underachiever loner, whose dad died around the same time his best friend moved away. He's been living sort of a half life since then, isolating himself and playing his guitar. Lyla, on the other hand, is an overachieving cellist who's on the fast track to a prestigious music school.

But when they're assigned to share a practice room, Tripp on the odd days, Lyla on the evens, they soon learn they have more in common than they would have thought possible.

The author used a lot of different styles to tell the story. There were switching viewpoints, text messages, notes passed, emails, and phone calls. The plot moved along quickly thanks to all of the devices.

It's a great read, particularly if you're a music love yourself!
