"Absolutely charming. Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, this story will leave you cheering." 
— Tahereh Mafi, New York Times bestselling
author of the Shatter Me series

"Once I started this book, I dropped everything and read it in one fell swoop. I love how Sharon Huss Roat allows Ivy and her other teenaged characters to be fully human, capable of petty snobbery and meanness, yes, but also of courage, humor, and startling kindness. I rooted, with all my heart, for every one of them." 
— Marisa de los Santos, New York Times 
bestselling author of LOVE WALKED IN and BELONG TO ME

"BETWEEN THE NOTES is a tender, funny, and heartfelt tale about what happens when privileged Ivy Emerson loses her house and her grand piano—and discovers that sometimes, the most beautiful music comes from the most unexpected places.This pitch-perfect debut will leave fans of Sarah Dessen and Gayle Foreman cheering for more." 
— Hilary T. Smith, author of WILD AWAKE 

"Beautifully poignant and heartbreakingly real, Roat's debut is impossible to put down.  I was rooting for Ivy every step of the way!" 
— Lucy Connors, author of The Lonesome Young

"Romance takes the front seat in Sharon Roat's pitch-perfect debut novel, BETWEEN THE NOTES, about a privileged girl forced to adjust to life on the wrong side of the tracks - funny, real, and highly recommended." 
— Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of Little Women and Me

"A wonderful debut, Between the Notes hits all the right notes." 
 Lisa Schroeder, author of ALL WE HAVE IS NOW 

"A big-hearted, relatable debut! You’ll root for Ivy as she learns that owning who you really are is infinitely better than pretending to be someone else." 
 Amy McNamara, author of LOVELY, DARK AND DEEP
