Publisher's Summary

In this middle-grade fantasy, perfect for fans of Nevermoor and The School for Good and Evil series, humor, heart, and a symphony of magic take center stage.

Amelia Jones has always dreamed of attending the Mystwick School of Musicraft, where the world’s most promising musicians learn to create musical magic. Unfortunately, Amelia botches her audition and her dream comes crashing down—until the school agrees to give her a second chance. Amelia vows to do whatever it takes to make her dream come true.

However, between a teacher who really dislikes her and a roommate who wants to see her expelled, Amelia has her hands full. On top of that, supernatural powers are threatening Mystwick, and Amelia might be the only person who can save the school…but only if she can remain true to herself. The combination of Jessica Khoury’s storytelling mastery, the highly-nuanced performance by award-winning narrator Suzy Jackson, and the songs, musical interludes, and original compositions included in this audio (all performed by the NJSO Youth Orchestras) makes it a treat for all fans of the fantasy genre.

"Toe-tapping fantasy mixes music and mystery."
—Kirkus Review on Jessica Khoury's The Mystwick School of Musicraft

Critic Reviews

“The concept of musicraft - producing magic by playing music - feels fresh and is undeniably appealing, and who is going to say no to a trip to another magical boarding school? The storytelling flows, pulling readers along, and some particularly grand, magical sequences (including a legitimately epic ending) make this stand-alone fantasy a memorable adventure…. It’s full of heart, clever plotting, and strong world building that young readers, musicians, and otherwise, will enjoy escaping to.” (Booklist)

“Khoury’s supernatural story is full of witty and comedic moments. The magical system is creatively designed and influenced by different tunes and kids learning to play instruments will get a kick out of seeing a fellow instrument-player struggle with auditions and use her talent to create literal magic. At the core, this is a feel-good story about believing in one’s ability, musical or otherwise.” (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)

“Beautiful imagery describes magic emerging from instruments. The book’s climax will send a chill down readers’ spines. For fans of Harry Potter who don’t want to stray too far from Hogwarts but are in need of new adventures.” (School Library Journal)

Love it so much

I love this story so much that even when my mother yells at me to”switch off the freaking iPad !!” I secretly keep listening and then I stop after an hour because I have my school the next day or my dad tells me to “ switch it off beta it’s already 12:35 !!!”
I love how Suzy Jackson expressed Jessica Khoury’s words in a such a way that you actually feel like you’re fighting the ghosts with Amelia’s spell
I love this book and am starting the next one tomorrow

Music is there for those who listen..

i loved the story a lot mainly because it was musical. there were times that i thought I wouldn't finish the story at all. it isn't the story that made me think like that but me missing parts of the story here and there and losing my concentration. there were many memorable moments in the story one that made me feel the emotion a lot is that (i don't if this would be a spoiler) when she was scared that she might lose her only friend J because of the truth. the part was little but I felt her fear emotion and all. this is not a spoiler i guess. but there are moments that i really loved and saying that will definitely be a spoiler. so I let you guys to know it yourself that is whoever reads it or hears it. the narration was great the voice wasn't low or high but perfect. In few places i struggled to understand who exactly is talking other than that it was great and i really loved it.

What a cute story!

Loved the premise of music being magic. It’s a kid’s story so some of the school drama and plot need to be taken in with that in mind. But I found it really enjoyable! I loved the way they added the musical parts in the background. I generally do NOT like when audiobooks do this as it adds no value, however here it really made sense and was very well done!

Better than expected

I'm a musician, and this was free, so I thought give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised to get sucked in to the storyline and the well written character development. Some of the plot twists were fairly obvious, but otherwise very creative, well written, and well performed. It left me wanting a sequel, and a movie.

Amazing example of how audiobooks should be

If you like music and magic this is a wonderful audiobook to try. It really shows how an audio format can enhance the written word and make it beautiful. I cried through the entire climax of this book and I'm about to see if this author has written more. I don't regret this being one of my free Audible Original choices.

So good I’m bummed out I have to wait for the next one

This caught me by surprise. I just happened onto this book as a freebie from Amazon. I will definitely purchase every book that is created in the series. Having the music interjected into the narration was brilliant. I even teared up. I’m a grown man and young adult stuff is not my thing but this is just something special. This Author is the next JK Rawlings. The movie rights on this will be epic.

Unexpected gem

I usually do not like any type of music added to audiobooks. The music I encountered in audiobooks so far was poor quality and distracting. This is SO different here. The music is an integral and wonderful part of the story and even brought me to tears once. I was sucked into the book within the first 10 minutes and finished it the same day. The narrator is superb and the story uplifting and encouraging. This is a book I would not even attempt to read after having listened to the audiobook, as the performance adds more than my imagination while reading ever could. This is by far my most favorite of the audible originals!

LOVED IT!!!

I absolutely LOVED listening to this book!!! I'm 32 years old and a truck driver and I myself got wrapped up in the story AND the music. I loved the song that Amelia composed when she was in the treehouse and again finishing it at the end of this story. BEAUTIFUL! ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL JOB WITH IT ALL!! I truly hope this becomes a show because I will definitely watch it!! 💓💓💓💓💓

Truly magical

Truly magical, a symphony of a story. I'm sad it is over. I hope there will be more. The author chose a clever twist of music and magic and made an original work.

I highly recommend this book if you like magic and you like smart characters you will love this story.

If you had looked at the story in a different way, it was quite dark, but the way it is described doesn’t make it feel that way. It’s packed full of detail and a stunning book to listen to.

Musical Hogwarts

Took me a few chapters to get into it, but then I really enjoyed it. I was a big Harry Potter fan and this is the closest I’ve come to finding something on par. There’s many musical references which might be lost on people who never learned an instrument, but it’s still easy enough to know what’s happening.

I highly recommend it. I’m about to get the next in the series.

Ideal driving book for whole family group

Gentle flowing school story book ideal for listening with family on long car trip.

Reader style and voice is gentle, clear and flowing. 12 year old heroine is likeable as she struggles with her identity and learning music and magic. The inclusion of actual music helps to round out the story and keep the interest of an eight year old.

I highly recommend it
