Summer Reads: MAJOR CRUSH by Jennifer Echols

26 Jun

I very clearly remember the cultures within cultures within cultures in high school.(Yup, I just shied away from counter-culture as the description — it’s more of layered culture, because the school as a whole effects each layer.)

 

I also remember the difference between that structure in New England versus the midwest. Maybe that’s one of the reasons this book hit home for me. While my Boston friends might not get the importantce of being Drum Major. (I had to EXPLAIN the movie Drumline to some of them!)

 

But Jennifer Echols Major Crush is more than just a look at a different group’s definition of cool and the power struggle that goes along with it. It’s a sweet look at what it means to be a girl, the roles the people you love expect you to fill and the path you take when you follow your heart.

 

Virginia and Drew have a lot to get past (beyond his girlfriend and the rumors they both have to deal with) – their own competitve spirits have them pushing away from each other when they’d rather be pulling each other close.

 

 Jennifer Echols knows how to tell us a great, fun story in a new, interesting way.
