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.

Praise For The Sweetest Sound…
"[T]his book -- much like Cadence -- absolutely blossoms."—Booklist
"The Sweetest Sound is a gorgeous song of a book - a story about faith, confidence, finding your voice, and singing out loud to lift up the people around you. I only wish I could hear Cadence Mariah Jolly sing for real. She's a character who will stay with me for a long, long time."—Kate Messner, author of The Seventh Wish and All the Answers
