Friday Reads: Noteworthy by Riley Redgate

Friday Reads

Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.

This week’s book: Noteworthy by Riley Redgate

Noteworthy Riley RedgateTitle: Noteworthy
Author: Riley Redgate
Publisher: Amulet Books
Publication Date: May 2, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

It’s the start of Jordan Sun’s junior year at the Kensington-Blaine Boarding School for the Performing Arts. Unfortunately, she’s an Alto 2, which—in the musical theatre world—is sort of like being a vulture in the wild: She has a spot in the ecosystem, but nobody’s falling over themselves to express their appreciation. So it’s no surprise when she gets shut out of the fall musical for the third year straight.

Then the school gets a mass email: A spot has opened up in the Sharpshooters, Kensington’s elite a cappella octet. Worshiped ... revered ... all male. Desperate to prove herself, Jordan auditions in her most convincing drag, and it turns out that Jordan Sun, Tenor 1, is exactly what the Sharps are looking for.

Does this book not sound like a fun, girl power kind of story? I have just started listening to this one on Audible and it is such a great listen so far. The whole concept of the boarding school and singing is something that I really enjoy and I can’t wait to know more about what happens next!

Monday morning was the worst time to have an existential crisis. I decided on a Monday morning while having an existential crisis.

My parents tracked my school performance like baseball nuts tracked the World Series. I never told people about it.

    I actually went to boarding school for most of my childhood and adolescent years (grade 3-12). I often wonder if I would put my own kids in boarding school too. I had a good experience, but not every kid in my school did, so I can understand that can be difficult for some. Interestingly I just wrote a post about my experience in boarding school, so this is fresh on my mind. 🙂
