The Turnaway Girls by Hayley Chewins

Twelve year old Delphernia has lived her entire life shut in a cloister in a cave with other girls where they make shimmer out of music.  The people who live in the city depend on the gold made by the girls who have never seen the city or known freedom.  Delphernia is unable to make shimmer and is mistreated by the sister who runs the cloister.  When she is unexpectedly set free she learns that the world is not what she thought it was.
