Khoury, Jessica. The Mystwick School of Musicraft
Expected January of 2020.
I loved this book SO much!!! This is one of the BEST books I’ve ever read!!! It’s about a girl named Amelia Jones, who joins a school that teaches magic music. When she arrives at the school, Amelia soon finds out that a different Amelia Jones was supposed to join the school!!! This book is about music and magic, and it really is magic that Amelia is a composer!!! When ghosts start attacking the school, can Amelia save them? Can she stop the spell? Read this book to find out.
