an evil tooth fairy, a secret grave, and a girl who’s brave enough to bite back

Someone—or something—is terrorizing the students of the elite Philemon Music Academy.

Genevieve Campbell is determined to win the school’s Haasenberg Voice for Tomorrow Award, no matter the sacrifice. With the Haasenberg on her resume, she could go anywhere. Julliard, Berkeley, the Royal Academy– they’d fight over her. But as an incoming freshman trombonist, Genny must work harder than anyone else to prove she’s the best, and to finally earn the attention of her father, an aloof, genius composer who’s drifted away from her since her mother died.

But on the night before the most important audition of her life, Genny attracts attention she doesn’t want. Someone breaks in while she’s sleeping and places an antique penny in her room, initiating the curse. Threatening notes start to appear in her home and in her trombone case. Tormented and sleep-deprived, Genny investigates her new eerie coastal town and the secrets buried in its past. Disturbing clues point to Penny Tooth, the skulking local legend who won’t leave Genny alone until it gets what it wants—her teeth, one by one, and then her life.

Or is it a competitor trying to scare her away?

To outwit whoever is harassing and terrifying the academy’s highest performers, Genny must enlist the help of her greatest rivals: Nico, first chair trombone, a focused and handsome sophomore, and Piper, a fun-loving freshman. To defeat the true menace behind Penny Tooth’s attacks, Genny will have to bite back.

PENNY TOOTH is a YA mystery/horror, loaded with atmosphere and dark secrets.
