I have been re-reading this A.W.E.S.O.M.E book by Jennifer Echols, it's called Major Crush. This book should be found in the Young Adult section in the Romantic Comedy series sub-section.
Here's the summary:
Tired of the beauty-pagean circuit, Virginia Sauter tosses her tiara, pierces her nose, and auditions for the most unlikely of roles -- drum major of the high school marching band.
Virginia wins, but is forced to share the title with Drew, whose family has held the position for generations. Sure, Drew is hot, but because of his superior attitude, he and Virginia are constantly arguing. That is, until they share more than just their half-time salute...
But as the drum major's heated competition turns to sizzling romance, explosive rumors threaten everything -- including the band's success. Love seemed to be a sure hit, but Virginia and Drew may be marching straight into disaster.
This is my review on this book:
This has to be one of my favorite books in the Romantic Comedy series. I read The Boys Next Door, but didn't know that she wrote that as well untill I Googled (I love Google!) her name and found her website. I have re-read this book at least four times in the past two days, so that must tell you how amazing it is, right? I even haven't read my Nancy Drew book yet (GASP!) I enjoyed the Virginia/Drew interaction as well as the Luther/Allison interaction. I didn't like the other guy character, (Walter) that much though, although he wasn't in most of this book. I am looking forward to my next visit to the library to pick up Battle of the Ex-es, also by Jennifer Echols.

I will now include below a review I got off of Amazon.com.

 his review is from: Major Crush (Romantic Comedies (Mass Market)) (Mass Market Paperback) MAJOR CRUSH has everything you could want in a book: Great characters, a fast paced, multifaceted plot, and great humor. I found myself laughing out loud at a few spots, and then having to explain to those sitting near me why I had laughed.
MAJOR CRUSH features a beauty pageant queen who just became the first girl drum major-- much to the chagrin of Drew, who now has to share the position with her. Add in a little romantic tension, some amazing secondary characters, and a secret or two, and you'll be hooked on Jennifer Echol's debut novel.
Five stars. :-)

So, to put all my (and the Amazon reviewers words) into one sentence: This book is highly recomended by me!
