Khoury beautifully captures the fear of orchestra auditions, the soul of making music, and the heart of finding who you are. When Amelia Jones fumbles her audition to attend the school, she's surprised to receive an acceptance letter. Upon arrival, she discovers she's not the right Amelia Jones. It's up to her to prove herself. There's many tests and trials, and there's dangerous magic lurking.— Madeline
Amelia Jones always dreamed of attending the Mystwick School of Musicraft, where the world’s most promising musicians learn to create magic. So when Amelia botches her audition, she thinks her dream has met an abrupt and humiliating end—until the school agrees to give her a trial period. Amelia is determined to prove herself, vowing to do whatever it takes to become the perfect musician. Even if it means pretending to be someone she isn’t. Meanwhile, a mysterious storm is brewing that no one, not even the maestros at Mystwick, is prepared to contain. Can Amelia find the courage to be true to herself in time to save her beloved school from certain destruction?
