Friday Memes: Noteworthy by Riley Redgate

Happy Friday everybody!!

Monday morning was the worst possible time to have an existential crisis, I decided on Monday morning, while having an existential crisis.
Friday 56:
He lifted a hand. "Again, I'm Isaac, your president. And the one who always looks like he just sniffed paint is your fearless musical director, Traveler Atwood."

Trav's nostrils flared. He said nothing.
Today I am reading Noteworthy by Riley Redgate. This was a surprise arrival from Amulet Books. It will be released on May 2 but I already have a finished copy. Here is the description from Amazon:
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. But 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.


  1. I have seen this book a few times and it is one that I think that I will enjoy! Mondays are always that kind of a day for me. Totally relatable book beginning! I hope it is one that you enjoy. :)

  2. I can relate to that beginning and got a chuckle out of me from the excerpt. The cover looks fun.

  4. Great premise. I just finished Bellweather Rhapsody which features a high school music festival. This looks like fun.

  5. LOL @ the beginning... I can relate sometimes. Happy weekend!

  6. Ha! Mondays are this way! Thanks for sharing.
