Terrific epistolary novel involving 2 high school kids using the same practice room. Makes you want to play and compose music. Very sweet little love story. The ending is too much -- but you don't care, you are rooting for the characters so much. Anyone making music should read it.

I think Guitar Notes is a good book if you are thinking about learning how to play the guitar. This book really help me see how fun the guitar can be.

Two teenagers, one passionate about guitar and the other a prodigy cellist, form an unlikely friendship over a shared school instrument and a practice room. They shrug off family pressures to play music together. A sweet story, slightly predictable but capturing the joy of music. But one of the parents is sadistically cruel, and it troubles me that her behavior is written off as a mistake, no big deal, easy to fix—whereas I think it borders on psychological abuse.

If this book was turned into a movie I would totally watch it.
