"Excellent."-Booklist An Amazon #1 Children's Music Book at Release Twelve-year-old Elissa has been raised in seclusion as a devotee of the Mother Goddess. She is a special child, a blessed child, a child who can sing miracles into being. Her voice can heal wounds, halt landslides, cure hunger-and even end wars.   But there are those who would use her gift for darker things. And when Elissa finds herself the farthest from home she's ever been-along with her vain and jealous music tutor, Lucio-she will have to develop the judgment to decide who wants to use her song to heal. and who wants to use her song to hurt.     In this astonishing debut-perfect for music lovers-Catherine Bakewell presents not only a wholly unique musical magic system, but a sumptuous baroque world filled with soaring basilicas, gilded palaces, dazzling food, and snow-piled wildernesses. It is a world both beautiful and treacherous, with a fiercely determined girl blazing brightly at its center. Can a lone voice change the world?   "Spellbinding."-The Horn Book "Beguiling."-Publishers Weekly "Unique."-BCCB "Captivating."-School Library Connection "Enthralling."-YA Books Central "Alluring."-School Library Journal
