Life in the Pit book. The author of this book, Kristen Landon, has been instrumental in helping me as a writer.

Life in the Pit book. I was looking forward to reading this book very much. I thought the main character was pretty paranoid, but, at the same time, I couldn't put the book down. Jul 28, 2009 Heather added it.

Life in the Pit was a cute, quick romance that piqued my interest because the main character is a cellist and I love the cello! . Kristen Landon always thought it would be nice to live in a place where winter never gets too cold.

Life in the Pit was a cute, quick romance that piqued my interest because the main character is a cellist and I love the cello! The story revolves around a play that isn’t real, but sounds like a mash-up of every Jane Austen novel ever written with a dash of Clue. Besides one lovely winter in California, she has spent her life bouncing back and forth between Michigan and Utah - both great places in the spring, summer, and fall.

Plain, normal Brittany has always lived in the shadow of her beautiful, popular friend Amanda. Amanda has a new boyfriend every week; Brittany doesn't date. Amanda is the star of the school musical; Brittany watches from behind her cello in the orchestra. From School Library Journal: Grade 7–10-Brittany plays first cello in the orchestra while her friend Amanda outshines her from center stage.

Life in the Pit was a cute, quick romance that piqued my interest because the main character is a cellist and I love the cello! The story revolves around a play that isn't real, but sounds like a mash-up of every Jane Austen novel ever written with a dash of Clue. Brittany is playing in the orchestra pit for the play while her best friend Amanda stars in it. The plot was a little over-dramatic and cheesy sometimes but still entertaining, cute, and fun.
Amanda and Brittany felt like frenemies at first. I had one of those in high school. But their relationship grows as the story grows on and I could see that they cared about each other. The boyfriend is cute, impulsive and thoughtful. Brittany is insecure but relatable. And Brittany is a terrible detective. Like laughably bad. But oh well. Brittany really grows by the end of the story and I enjoyed watching her become more confident.

It was pretty obvious who the "mystery" sabatoger of the play was, but when I found out the motive it was so bizarre that I was just like.....okay..... I have no words, really.

Overall, a fun contemporary romance that was only a little cheesy from a lovely local author of mine.

If you are in school, or if you are older try to remember when you were in school, do you ever think of yourself as just a plain, ordinary person who probably doesn't appeal to anyone, but perhaps one of your good friends is someone whom everybody seems to like? Brittany, a high school senior, doesn't date and watches the school play from behind her cello in the orchestra pit. Her best friend Amanda is popular, seems to have a new boyfriend every week, and is the star of the play. In fact, boys often initiate friendships with Brittany just to get her to introduce them to Amanda. However, Kyle, the male lead in the play, begins to show an interest in Brittany, and it's not just because she's Amanda's friend.

About the same time, both Brittany and Amanda get some anonymous notes, threatening to sabotage the play and to harm Amanda and anyone who's close to her. Who could it be? Many girls are jealous of Amanda's beauty, and she has rebuffed a number of boys after going out with them a few times. Or is it possible--and there's evidence to suggest this--that it might be Kyle? Brittany is torn between her growing interest in Kyle and her steadfast friendship with Amanda. There are a lot of things that I like about this book. Many people will enjoy the romance aspect, but the mystery angle especially appeals to me. The story is well written, easy to read, and paced in such a way to keep one's interest but still allow for good character development. The suspense of wanting to find out who's responsible for the threats makes it hard to put the book down.

Parents, particularly of children who are on the younger end of the suggested reading level, may want to know that there are numerous references to typical public high school boy-girl relationships that include dating, flirting, dancing, and kissing, and on one occasion Amanda expresses her objection to heavy-duty, groping make-out sessions. This is not to say that the book contains anything that is out of order. In fact, I really appreciate the way that Amanda was determined to maintain her purity and rejected the boys who tried to take advantage of her. I simply mention this so that parents can take into account the maturity level of their children and make their own decision as to whether they feel that these kinds of things are appropriate for them. I should think that most teenagers will find this book fascinating.

I always like to pass along a heads up when good books come out--especially if they're YA. It is so hard to find good Young Adult (ages 14+) fiction because so much of what's out there today either pushes the moral limits, or it's too preachy and sappy. So when I find a good one, I announce it to the world.

Life in the Pit by Kristen Landon is a good one!

What I like about this book is that there's a mystery to solve--it's not just a story about a love-struck teenager. The story line is great and you'll be hard-pressed to figure out who's behind the threatening notes. The characterizations are wonderful. The teenagers sound and act like teenagers, but "good" teenagers--no swearing, no inappropriate intimacy. Parents won't mind their tweens and teens using the main character as a role model--she is no goody two-shoes, but she's also not depressed, suicidal or self-destructive. This is a fun story that will be enjoyed by girls, ages 12 to 16, and us more mature girls who like to read YA.

For this genre, it gets a 5 out of 5 from me. Loved it.

A fun and entertaining read, I was surprised that it appealed to me, a mom of 3, as much as it would a teen or young adult. Well-written with well-developed characters, I was immediately immersed in the story and couldn't put the book down. I loaned this to a friend's teen daughter who also said she read it within a day or two--she loved it! It was so nice to find a book that is clean and uplifiting, and that has positive messages for young women in particular. A great find, and would also make a very good gift for any teen or pre-teen. Good mystery!

An utterly charming book, with a touch of mystery. Brittany's quirky commentaries on high school, dating, and life in general had me laughing out loud through the whole story. LOVED the out of control lipstick scene!
