The Mozart Girl

The Mozart Girl


By Barbara Nickel


What if Mozart’s sister had had her moment in the spotlight?

Nannerl Mozart’s twelfth birthday wish is to become a famous composer. She’s already considered a brilliant musician, touring 18th century Europe with her little brother Wolfgang and playing for queens and kings in the great courts. But Papa doesn’t take her seriously as a composer, Mama usually has a list of chores for her, and Wolfi always manages to steal everybody’s attention. Can Nannerl defy everyone’s expectations and capture some of the spotlight that shines on her brilliant younger brother?
