    This was an ok read I think it would appeal to middle grade readers for the most part I just didn’t find the storyline to be that realistic and appealing

    When Maya's dad brings home a beat up RV and declares the family is selling their house and embarking on an adventure she's less than thrilled Especially since it means missing out on the chance to audition for a reality singing competition alongside the boy she's crushing on Who could blame her for cooking up a million and one plots to get back home despite the fact that life on the road isn't uite as bad as she expected and full of unusual sights and people Super fun tween drama here and the premise is spot on perfect I loved this book

    Normally love this author's work but since I don't have many singers in school I think I'll pass Living in a trailer is pretty uirky but there have been families in our area who have done it for a while I think my big objection was that I didn't like Maya very much Either that or I flashed back to my family's travel trailer that my parents threatened to live in for a while Since my parents were both educators it was a valid threat I think they planned on subbing here and there Luckily it never happened

    Imagine selling your house and living out of a retro RV camper Sounds crazy fun right? Not to twelve year old singing hopeful Maya whose secret crush asked HER to audition for the TV show Dueling Duets Her big break is coming but her parents expect her to give it all up downsize her bedroom to a cubbyhole and climb aboard Bertha the Beast with her sister Bug While the rest of her family embraces this new life on wheels and even meets new friends Gert and Shiver along the way all Maya wants to do is get home to Nashville in time for the audition especially before she loses the cute boy with a lazy smile to her rival With help from her BFF back home via texts she plans Operation Maya Goes Home I loved how author Gail Nall used Maya's texting to pull her out of the moment again and again Just when she's about to give the Grand Tetons a chance here comes a shocking update It's painfully obvious that while Maya is scheming how to make it to the audition she's missing out on the adventure of a lifetime Gail hit all the right notes in Out of Tune especially when it comes to a preteen's tug and pull of family and friends Hats off to Maya and her crew for taking me on one twisty adventure

    Out of Tune is a cute story of aspiring country singer Maya an ugly RV named Bertha a girl with blue hair named Shiver and the desperate chase of a dreamOverall this was a good book I enjoyed the characters—especially Bug and Remy I thought they were a lot of fun Even as an adult reading this aloud had me laughing at certain parts Sick Stu was a particular favorite and the relationship that Maya has with her parents is truly believable Nall does a great job of slipping into the shoes of a young starlet who's struggling with her place in an ever rearranging lifeThere were however some things that I thought could have been done a bit better SPOILERSThe thing that bothered me most about Out of Tune was the bluntness of the climax The pacing of the story is slow and the reader is led to believe that the climax will take place when a specific event happens When we spend 300 pages building up the importance of this event—having the main character obsess over it the entire time—we're blindsided when that same character suddenly drops their goal in one page with little immediate emotional build up to itI was a little disappointed that in certain parts Maya's character growth and strength hinged on the boy that she liked but there certainly are stories that go that way sometimesI also wanted a little bit from Shiver's ending Yes Maya suggested that Shiver become a caregiver for Gert but when a large underlying arc of the plot is that Shiver's mother is neglectful I really wanted a conclusion of that tied off a bit securely even if it was just it's not okay but that's how life is for some people Instead I felt like the climax of that arc was the reveal to Maya itselfSPOILERSOverall Out of Tune is a fun little read and I would recommend it to any young person who 1 enjoys country music2 has a dream they sometimes feel is unattainable3 is traveling for the summer and needs a light read

    Didn't love this one as much as Breaking the Ice Maya is a talented singer and is looking forward to auditioning for Dueling Duets with her crush Jack Her parents put a major wrench in her plans when they decide to trade in their home for an RV They've always dreamed of traveling around the country Maya's little sister is thrilled but Maya sees HER dreams going down the toilet On top of that she has to live in a tiny compartment lose her best friend and run into a girl she can't stand at every campground She's determined to get back to Nashville even if it means grabbing a ride with strangers or borrowing her mom's credit card I wanted this book to be about the singing It's a road trip book The book kept me interested because I couldn't wait to see how Maya would get back to Nashville Big disappointment She never makes it back for the audition I guess it was important to learn a lesson Things are never as bad as they seem You have to roll with the punches Parents know best Etc Etc Etc


  7. Stephanie Faris Stephanie Faris says:

    The idea of traveling around the country in an RV sounds amazing to most of us Not to the lead character in Out of Tune though All Maya wants is to audition for a show called Dueling Duets with her secret crush Jack But her fixation on getting home almost makes her miss out on all of the great things about her new life including a cute boy named Remy and a frenemy named Shiver Gail does a fantastic job of conveying the angst a preteen feels when she's stuck with her family while missing out on so much back at home You can't help but feel as though you've been on the adventure alongside Maya


  8. MIriam Spitzer Frankllin MIriam Spitzer Frankllin says:

    Funny and heartwarming Maya's story is about following your dreams even after her parents put them on hold by moving the family into the RV and embarking on a cross country trip Along the way she makes new friends sees new things and opens her mind to adventures all while discovering truths about herself and her family connections A great middle school read


  9. Kenzie Kenzie says:

    This book was definitely good but it sometimes confused me Sometimes the author would mention things twice like this isn't actually from the book I saw a bear looking at me strangely and then a couple sentences later it would say I looked over to find a bear giving me a weird look So I guess it was kind of redundant at some points but other than that it was a really good book
