All about that bass.

New marching novel alert!  I’m not the only one doing this. people.  
Joey Kimbel is a shy, red headed musician just starting high school. When he joins the marching band as the new snare drum player, he finds himself battling bullies and jocks and falling for the one girl he’s not supposed to love - color guard girl, Alhena Almasi. Now, with a band of misfits and skater punks, Joey struggles to survive high school, find his own path and be with the only girl that matters in his universe. Marching Band and the Expanding Universe is a story of love and pain and learning to be true to yourself. It is for anyone who can’t live without music. This book is for anybody who’s been picked on and isn’t afraid to fight back.
Buy it on Amazon.

Pros:

  • It proves that women can do things just as well, if not better than me
  • female empowerment
  • kickass female musicians being put on a stage with other phenomenal female performers

Cons:

  • Damage to the most fragile thing on earth, a man’s ego

It’s been done before!  There are historic all female corps.
