Band Book Week

Sorry I'm a little late coming to the party. In the hullaballoo of taking over the new position, I'd almost missed all the wonderful press about Band Book Week. It's so great that the blogging community has come together to celebrate and note this often neglected subgenre of YA lit.

Flux is proud to offer two stellar entries in this field: BAND GEEK LOVE by Josie Bloss which was a summer reading favorite for band campers all across the country. (Fret not, Bloss fans, a sequel IS on the way...) And we've also got the recently released BUSTED: CONFESSIONS OF AN ACCIDENTAL PLAYER by debut novelist Antony John which features band geek Kevin Mopsely who stands to rocket to A-list popularity status at school...provided he can supply the senior class guys with an accurate catalog of all the senior girls' measurements.

I hope when you settle in to pay deference to Band Book Week, you'll consider picking up one of these...





















....Wait, what?...

...Two Ns? Really? Man, homophones suck...

Never mind.

And when this momentous week comes around next year Flux will also have on its roster 'So Punk Rock (And Other Ways to Disappoint Your Mother'). This hybrid novel / graphic novel promises to be the literary equivalent of turning your amp to eleven, smashing your guitar neck-first into it and watching the sparks fly (except, you know, less dangerous and destructive).
