    Best Book EVER!!!!

    This is by all means my most preffered book of all time. I remember when I first saw it, eight grade of '08. I could not put it down! I just loved being in the eyes of Mozart's sister and all of her hardships. Poor thing didn't stand much of a chance after Mozart was born. The book is simply spectacular and is still my most cherished book on my shelf even 3 years later!! Highly Recomended.

    Awesome!

    This was a really, really sad, but wonderful story. It talks not only about the issue of male vs. female, but the issue of age and talent. Carolyn Meyer is a great writer and her historical fiction is unique and inspiring.

    The Other Mozart

    I'm always interested in reading historical fiction about Mozart's life, so I really liked reading Nannerl's side of the story. It chronicles Mozart and Nannerl's childhood touring across Europe, until their lives take seperate turns after their ambitious father puts aside Nannerl's talent in favor of developing her brother's. Although there isn't really a happy ending, Nannerl's struggle is poignant, struggling to retain her love of music while her brother has the life and career she wants. Anyone who loves Mozart or Carolyn Meyer's novels should definitely read this.

    Wow!

    I loved this book! It was so beautifully written. You couldn't help but feel sorry for Nannerl! I felt so bad for her. I was disappointed that there wasn't a pronunciation guide for the foreign words, but it was a great book nonetheless!
