Full Flight by Ashley Schumacher (Goodreads Author)
Everyone else in the tiny town of Enfield, Texas calls fall football season, but for the forty-three members of the Fighting Enfield Marching Band, it’s contest season. And for new saxophonist Anna James, it’s her first chance to prove herself as the great musician she’s trying hard to be.
When she’s assigned a duet with mellophone player Weston Ryan, the boy her small-minded town thinks of as nothing but trouble, she’s equal parts thrilled and intimidated. But as he helps her with the duet, and she sees the smile he seems to save just for her, she can’t help but feel like she’s helping him with something too.
After her strict parents find out she’s been secretly seeing him and keep them apart, together they learn what it truly means to fight for something they love. With the marching contest nearing, and the two falling hard for one another, the unthinkable happens, and Anna is left grappling for a way forward without Weston.
A heartbreaking novel about finding your first love and what happens when it’s over too soon. Ashley Schumacher’s Full Flight is about how first love shapes us—even after it’s gone.
Full flight was really good! The first half was a little bit slower and I thought the first I love you was a little bit fast.
But the middle of the book and the end changed my mind about the pacing and I ended up liking the story. I didn’t like the plot twist that happened suddenly because I definitely wasn’t expecting it.
One minute things were normal and then bam everything changed next chapter.
The author handled that event well and I liked the band competition scenes too.
This ended up being a four star rating. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing chance to read and review.
Thanks for reading!
