This week it’s Noteworthy by Riley Redgate.
Issac’s eyes burned into mine. For a second the walls fell away, and I saw a flash of bitterness, of disappointment. I stared mulishly back, my heart pounding.
Noteworthy is an ARC which I received from NetGalley. I’ve done a full review of it but basically I wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I did. It’s about a cappella and while I liked Pitch Perfect, it wasn’t my most favourite thing, but this book is about so much more than that. I was hoping to get one of Jordan’s hilarious quotes but on 56%, there was only this definitely not-funny quote. Would definitely recommend it all the same.
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. Summary from Goodreads
