Publisher's Summary

For days, three seventh-grade girls - Jenna, Suzanne, and Claire - agonize over whether to say anything. Finally they summon the courage to speak up about their music teacher, Frederick Mattero. What happens next is chaos. Parents are called. A teacher is accused and attacked. The gossip mill churns like mad. Police arrive to question other students, beginning with Melody, Mr. Mattero's daughter. Did Mr. Mattero do anything improper, or are the girls simply lying? Told from two points of view, Claire's and Melody's, this novel takes readers into their private middle-school worlds as the girls struggle to discover the truth.

"The book provides a great deal of high-interest suspense, and, when the issue of what Mr. Mattero did is finally resolved, readers get an ending that's both satisfying and realistic." ( School Library Journal)
