When Ivy Emerson’s family loses their house—complete with her beloved piano—the fear of what’s to come seizes her like a bad case of stage fright. Only this isn’t one of her single, terrifying performances. It’s her life.And it isn’t pretty.Ivy is forced to move with her family out of their affluent neighborhood to Lakeside, also known as “the wrong side of the tracks.” Hiding the truth from her friends—and the cute new guy in school, who may have secrets of his own—seems like a good idea at first. But when a bad boy next door threatens to ruin everything, Ivy’s carefully crafted lies begin to unravel . . . and there is no way to stop them.As things get to the breaking point, Ivy turns to her music, some unlikely new friends, and the trusting heart of her disabled little brother. She may be surprised that not everyone is who she thought they were . . . including herself.Debut author Sharon Huss Roat crafts a charming and timely story of what happens when life as you know it flips completely upside down.

Unquotables from BETWEEN THE NOTES by Sharon Huss Roat
I love books you can open to almost any page and find beautiful quotes that transcend the story. You know, the kind that get printed on a background of clouds or sunsets as inspirational quote graphics? BETWEEN THE NOTES has a few such utterings. Probably. But I prefer the strange, awkward quotes that are sometimes even more humorous when taken out of context. For today’s book blitz post, I flipped to some random pages and found these gems:
“I’ve always thought sheep should have different names for singular and plural. Like,one sheep and two sheepies. Or one shep and two sheep.”
No looking like a possessed sea anemone today.
DO THESE CORNFLAKES LOOK LIKE STONEHENGE OR IS IT JUST ME?
Standing in a puddle is always a nice place to discover your footwear isn’t waterproof.
“I have to go throw gravel now.”
There you have it! Words to live by, or… not. For more unquotables, or to put these quotes back into context where they belong, you’ll have to get the book! ☺
