    Alright, anyone who knows me knows that I'm a bit of a fan of Zac Efron, and therefore High School Musical (2006). To celebrate turning 30 recently I threw a glorious Zac Efron musical day, and my friend got me a boxset that collects the first four Stories from East High. I finally got around to reading Battle of the Bands, and speaking as a huge fan of the films, this book is not good. The characterisation is real hit and miss, with Troy particularly ringing hollow.

I finally got around to reading Battle of the Bands, and speaking as a huge fan of the films, this book is not good. The characterisation is real hit and miss, with Troy particularly ringing hollow. There are a couple of lines of dialogue that sound believable from the characters, and Chad is admittedly written quite well, but overall this is not a good book. Understandably I'm probably not the demographic for this, and sure I wasn't exactly expecting original songs, but I was hoping that this would at least be somewhat tolerable. It's not a promising start of something new. 1.5/5

    I know that I read this series in elementary school, but all I really remember about it is that Gabriella sang "These Boots Were Made For Walking" in the Battle of the Bands.0 And at some point, there was a dance where Sharpay was dressed as Scarlett O'Hara, and Zeke recognized her costume and said, "Frankly, my dear, it is my favorite movie."

    The first movie did not get an amazing review from me. I felt that most of the movie seemed to take place on the longest day ever, and it never shows Gabriella giving Troy her address. Yet he inexplicably knows where she lives and, allegedly, the movie is quite a bit of a school year. Sharpay, is shown as the antagonist and as this girl who wants the leading female role in the school play, but is rarely seen throughout the movie. It’s not mentioned right away that her and Ryan are brothers till The first movie did not get an amazing review from me.

Yet he inexplicably knows where she lives and, allegedly, the movie is quite a bit of a school year. Sharpay, is shown as the antagonist and as this girl who wants the leading female role in the school play, but is rarely seen throughout the movie. It’s not mentioned right away that her and Ryan are brothers till the end of the movie, leaving the viewer to think for most of it that they’re boyfriend and girlfriend. Honestly, the music in it is it’s only redeeming factor. However, movie two and three are good in my opinion, with the second one being the best in the whole series (despite the Miley Cyrus cameo). One of the movies (can’t remember which) has Sharpay singing to Troy this borderline inappropriate song that seems to have...lets just say sexual activity metaphors in it. Oy. Way to go, Disney. Since I liked movies two and three, I have some of the books. I’m assuming that the books in this series are not canon. On pg 17, it’s revealed that this takes place after the first movie.. On pg 35, it says Prom hasn’t happened yet...so... this allegedly takes place somewhere between the first and end of the third movie? At the start of it, the Principal tells them at an assembly that there will be a Battle of the Bands to raise funds for a new tennis court. Sharpay wants to start a band with Alicia and Charlotte (I forget what the actresses looked like). Ryan is disappointed because it’s a girl band and he’s left out. Chad wants to start a band with his basketball team mates, which makes Gabriella feel left out. Eventually, Gabriella is chosen to be Ryan’s tutor in Algebra. On pg 62, I noticed there were a lot of parallels (I think that’s the right word) to this story; similarities/different situations with similar outcomes when it comes to Ryan and Gabriella. Issues: On pg 12, the start of ch 2, it says that Troy and his team bounded onto the court while slapping each other high fives. I have no memories of friends high-fiving each other back then. It was 2007. You either fist-bumped or waved. Several places in the book had high-fiving as well... not sure why. High-fiving became somewhat of a patronizing or an ‘I’ll just be nice, but I don’t really wanna be your friend’ move somewhere between ‘03 or ‘04. Maybe Disney was trying to bring it back to what it was. *shrugs* At several points in the book, there were pretentious exclamation points. *sigh* On pg 62, it says that Troy winked at Ryan. Granted, the context is not flirtatious, but guys didn’t do this in my High School. Admittedly, some of the flamboyant ones did, but definitely not any of our basketball team players. My take: Upon finishing the book, I had a spontaneous orgasm that shook my entire house because this book is so damn good! ...Okay. That didn't happen; but it was a little better than the first movie, which isn’t what I figured. Eh. It loses three stars for something not being very believable toward the end, and for too many pretentious exclamation points. 2 stars.

    Ame infinitamente este libro, no se porque no lo leí antes, fue genial poder volver a este mundo y descubrir una historia que no pudimos ver en la película, debo decir que algunas escenas se me hicieron súper cómicas y muy al estilo de High School, Sin duda mis partes favoritas fueron las de Sharpay, es tan diva y cómica que es imposible no amarla, al terminar quede con ansias de más y una tristeza en mi corazón por esa infancia olvidada.

    I'm going to keep this short and sweet.... I loved this book. Maybe a little bit less than other books that I have given four stars too but that doesn't matter. This book was light, funny and utterly enjoyable. I loved the whole concept of the plot and the recognisable characters which made it come to life. This book made me laugh, made me feel sympathy for some of the characters and it made me smile. That's what I call a good book even though it does sound cheesy when I say it, since I'm not a I'm going to keep this short and sweet.... I loved this book.

    since my finals are a week from now, I didnt want to read books that would compel me to think. I didnt want to imagine characters and setting from stratch under stress of studies. so I picked this up for a quick, easy read. I dived into this book partly expecting it to be like the previous book that I read (poetry in motion). and it kind of was. but not a teensy bit disappointing. it was extremely predictable but I'll live with that. I have fonder memories of d movies and it was nothing but a tre since my finals are a week from now, I didnt want to read books that would compel me to think.

    I liked this book because of all the drama in this book.How Troy, and sharpy stoped thinking of the person that they always talked to . I like it when Garbrila went on stage an song a 60's song. Sharpy made a girls group and the song a 60's song to.In this story Garbrila turtored Rayn .

    in m opinion I think that sharpie was very mean and spoiled and mean to other but I think that the reason she was mean and did everything she did was because she wanted to take Troy away from Gabriella and I think that was a very cruel thing to do it was NOT NICE!!

    I was curious to see what these little books were like; the movies being so fun. It was pretty disappointing. The book was dumb. Oh well, it only took me like 20 minutes to read.
