Gr 6-8--This novel chronicles the summer Band Camp adventures of Madison, a 13-year-old girl whose parents have just divorced. She is reluctant to attend the camp because she is the "new girl," and much of the plot centers on her tentative attempts to find her place in this group. She is invited to replace a popular older girl as first chair in the flute section but is reluctant to accept the honor, fearing that she will alienate others. This novel is well written, and the author deals sensitively with both "ugly duckling" feelings of not fitting in, and with Madison's reactions to her parents' divorce. The requisite cute guy vs. nerdy guy dilemma is included, but it plays a fairly small part in the realistic interaction between male and female campers. Enhanced by its unique setting, Beans on Toast should be well received by young teens.
