The director randomly chooses three to four students every day to play eight to twelve measures of their solos. When I was chosen, I knew it was not going to go well because I still hadn’t practiced enough to sound decent. I stood up to play my couple of measures, feeling my chest get heavy with anxiety.

Linda, Matt, and Jamie both face some pretty tough problems, but while one likes to play the blame game, the other looks on the bright side. Linda is a complex character. All throughout the story, she does nothing but complain and while it can get frustrating, we soon learn later on in the story that there is a reason behind her madness. Linda and her husband, Charlton, both struggle financially. Of course expecting to have money left over when someone has had three kids in the first five years of being married isn’t likely.
