Book spotlight for Middle Grade Carousel January 2023: How Sweet the Sound features the book TUNE IT OUT by Jamie Sumner.

Lou Montgomery has the voice of an angel, but she doesn’t wish for the fame and fortune that her mother dreams up as they travel place to place across the country in their pickup. Lou has never liked crowds or loud noises or even high fives; in fact, she’s terrified of them, which makes her pretty sure there’s something wrong with her.

After an accident brings child services into the situation, Lou is separated from her mom and sent to stay with family she’s never known. With help from an outgoing new friend, her kindly aunt and uncle, and the counselor of her fancy new private school, Lou begins to see her life, music, and opportunities a lot differently.

Genius

It was all so clever. Bach was a musical genius, but he didn’t stop with beautiful music. He had all these jokes and numerical riddles running in his notes—forward, backward, and upside down sometimes. Two of her favorite things in one package: math and music! Oh, how she loved Bach!
