Life in the Pit

Life in the Pit  by Kristen Landon

About the Book:  Brittany plays the cello (very well) and is first chair in the pit orchestra for the high school play.  Her best friend Amanda is the star of the show and the star of the school (as far as guys and dating are concerned), while Brittany has never had a boyfriend.  Life (in the pit and out) gets much more complicated for Brittany when she and Amanda start receiving threatening notes around the same time that the male lead from the play starts paying attention (of the romantic-let's-kind) to Brittany.

 What Mr. Dorsey Thinks:  The book is not great literature, but I enjoyed reading it.  Its  combination of mystery, danger,  and romance make it a fun summer read. 

About the Author:  Landon lives here in Utah County, and I met her at a book store authors' event.
