Read Turn It Up! Online Free - The Nightingales are in a serious funk. Bradley Academy's all-girl a cappella group used to be the pride and joy of the sunshine state, but the Nightingales have fallen out of harmony. Best friends and co-captains Lidia Sato and Sydney Marino aren't speaking. A boy has come between them -- none other than Griffin Mancini, the obnoxious lead singer of Bradley's smug all-boy a capella group, the Kingfishers. The Nightingales have no chance at winning the big state final if their captains are at each other's throats. Their only hope is new girl Julianna Ramirez. She's super shy, but she has some serious pipes. The three girls -- and the whole group -- will have to come together if they want to beat the Kingfishers and their rivals from Julianna's old school. Told from alternating points of view, this novel explores the ups and downs of friendship, romance, competition, and finding the perfect song!

4.5 stars. I love singing and musicals and this book felt like it was made for me. That being said, it was more about relationships than singing. I only wish she would have described the singing scenes better because if I can't hear the song, I wanted to feel what the characters felt.

The two main characters were much too whiny and immature for me to relate to them. Had a reason for Lidia's behavior from earlier in her life been revealed, I'd be much more sympathetic.

Fun friendship story with an a cappella backdrop. Clean, simple and fun story for teens. Ending left things open - maybe there will be a sequel.
