Beloved and award-winning author Anne Fine returns with a touching, musical story of patience, practice and courage.

Everyone's always telling Will to stop making so much noise. That is, until he meets music teacher Mr Brand. He thinks Will's not just noisy but that he has a gift and must learn to play the violin. But Will doesn't feel special. He can never find peace to practice at home and carrying a violin around school is too embarrassing. There's also the small matter of his stage fright… Can he really become the star Mr Brand believes in?
