Novel on Music

I am no fan of novels nor even having the interest of reading one. There are a lot of English novels at home but those never hit my interests.

However, just very recently, while sporting for kids musical books at a book shop nearby, I bumped into a novel, a musical one. It is the Guitar Notes by Mary Amato.

Guitar Books

Here’s the summary of the novel.

On odd days, Tripp uses a school practice room to let loose on a borrowed guitar. Eyes closed, strumming that beat-up instrument, Tripp escapes to a world where only the music matters.On even days, Lyla Marks uses the same practice room. To Tripp, she’s trying to become even more perfect–she’s already a straight-A student and an award-winning cellist. But when Lyla begins leaving notes for him in between the strings of the guitar, his life intersects with hers in a way he never expected. What starts as a series of snippy notes quickly blossoms into the sharing of interests and secrets and dreams, and the forging of a very unlikely friendship.Challenging each other to write songs, they begin to connect, even though circumstances threaten to tear them apart.From beloved author Mary Amato comes a YA novel of wit and wisdom, both heartfelt and heart¬≠breaking, about the power of music and the unexpected chords that draw us together.

By just merely reading the summary of the novel, one can imagine a setting where the characters fall in love by and with the music, the songs they are playing. Isn’t it great to feel like being loved and in-loved much even more when music also plays a role?

Sometimes, I also put myself in the characters’ roles and even put more spices on it like thinking that we are in a guitar center sessions attending a music class and with the one I also been longing to love and be loved. Oh well, I think I need to stop daydreaming.

Anyway, the novel seemed really great. So grab a copy of this one now and start falling in love with music.
