Updated Silent Sonata Plot and Characters

Silent Sonata

Fifteen year old Zoe Sabrina Chelsea Hamilton is a girl without a mother. Unlike divorced parents Zoe Sabrina lost her mother to AIDS. And it's likely before she graduates high school that she'll lose her father to the same disease. A budding magician and gifted piano player, Zoe Sabrina is preparing to attend Jonathan Larson High School for the Arts, the very same school her mother graduated from. Isolated from her aunts Erica and Pemberley, who have their own secret club and have always felt that Zoe Sabrina is the outsider, Zoe Sabrina makes her own friends at school. Graham Evanston, a fellow student in the music program entrances Zoe Sabrina with his passion for the music he can't hear. 

Shaking up Zoe Sabrina's world is the announcement that her grandparents Max and Lauren are divorcing and that her father's illness is worsening. Pulled into the drama of the divorce and wishing her mother was still with her, Zoe Sabrina delves deeper into her music and her relationship with Graham.
