"Our favorite acadrama book. AcaPolitics is awesome. Read it."
--Dave Brown, co-host of Mouth Off: The A Cappella Music Podcast

“Stephen swooped in from behind and wrote something brand new and totally different ... It’s a good read, and really struck a chord with me as an alumnus of the scene (as I imagine it did for many others) ... AcaPolitics is a pretty solid debut that features subject matter vital to our community.”
--Robert Dietz, Vocal Coach for NBC’s The Sing-Off

“Stephen Harrison writes these characters with such humanity, and draws his aca-world with such vibrance, that you can’t help getting sucked in ...  Reading the book was like reuniting with old friends. I laughed and cried right along with them; I can’t remember the last time a book made me feel like this.”
--Michael Marcus, The New Book Review

"Reveals the collegiate a cappella universe to be one of unparalleled hope, community, and love ... The narrative carries a real authenticity, between a respect for the intricacies of music, and a love for the rich body of quirky traditions that one could never truly separate from the a cappella world ... I loved AcaPolitics. And the best news of all about this book? It's the first in a series."
--Mike Chin, The A Cappella Blog

“If you are thinking about auditioning for an a cappella group, this book is required reading … I cringed at the truth being revealed about what happens in the audition room and how group members react to auditionees … Stephen does a great job of giving life to the different personalities in the a cappella world.”
--Mark Torres, SIN3G

"Who knew a cappella could get so treacherous? ... A unique and humorous way to look at the politics that all so often happens in real world universities."
--Midwest Book Review

“It's hard to believe this is Stephen Harrison's first novel. Not only is it a fascinating read, but it's also a primer for anyone who's considering collegiate acappella in their future. I'd recommend this book to everyone, young or old, musical or not. A pleasure to read, and nearly impossible to put down.
--Joan Hare, The ACA Winner for Favorite A Cappella Fan

--Jay Miller

"I’ve never been in a collegiate a cappella group myself, but I somehow managed to entrench myself . . . I guess what I’m trying to say is, I’m thoroughly enjoying the vicarious feeling of being in that world that I’m getting from the book."
--Joel Levitz
