Product Description

When ten-year-old Cadence Jolly was six, her mother skipped town with dreams of becoming a singing star. Cadence inherited that musical soul, but otherwise they couldn't be more different - she's as shy as can be. But Cadence did make a promise last year that she would try to break out of her shell, and prayed that she'd get the courage to do it. When a secret recording of her singing leaks and catches the attention of her whole church, she needs to decide what's better: deceiving everyone or finally stepping into the spotlight. Recommended for ages 8 to 12 years.

Publisher's Description

A story of family, faith, and following your heart

For ten-year-old Cadence Jolly, birthdays are a constant reminder of all that has changed since her mother skipped town with dreams of becoming a singing star. Cadence inherited that musical soul, she can't deny it, but otherwise she couldn't be more different - she's as shy as can be.

She did make a promise last year that she would try to break out of her shell, just a little. And she prayed that she'd get the courage to do it. As her eleventh birthday draws near, she realizes time is running out. And when a secret recording of her singing leaks and catches the attention of her whole church, she needs to decide what's better: deceiving everyone by pretending it belongs to someone else, or finally stepping into the spotlight.

In a story filled with whimsy and hope, Sherri Winston inspires readers to embrace the voice within.

Editorial Reviews

"[A] rich and winning first-person story about a deeply introverted black girl who nearly loses her gift because of her understandable but undermining fear. Readers will be rooting for both Cadence as she claims her gift and the community who supports her."—Kirkus Reviews
"[T]his book -- much like Cadence -- absolutely blossoms."—Booklist
