Gr 9 Up—Freya thought that she had only strained her voice, but now that it's been three weeks and she still can't sing, she's beginning to worry. Harun is stuck between his family's expectations and the truth of his sexuality. Nathaniel feels that he has nothing left to lose and uses the last of his money to go to New York City. Through a chance encounter, these teens learn of the burdensome secrets they are all carrying and begin to help each other heal over the course of one life-changing day. Forman has crafted a beautiful standalone novel full of heart and emotion, perfect for a YA audience. The story is told through the eyes of three distinct characters, and listeners will have no problem empathizing with their issues. Nicole Lewis, Sunil Malhotra, and Michael Crouch capably narrate the main roles.
VERDICT A relatable story about struggling to find oneself that will make a good addition to high school or public library collections, especially where Forman is popular.
