Small-town life can be rough, even in easygoing California, and 16-year-old Monty Sole experiences it up close—not only as the daughter of two moms but also because of her interest in the unexplained mysteries of the world (like psychic powers). Narrator Rebecca Lowman's soft tones and youthful cadence highlight Monty's struggles to understand the high school social scene, homophobia, and the mixed messages of evangelical Christianity. Lowman's use of distinct voices for the dialogue and a change in inflection for texts and websites serves as guideposts for the listener in this coming-of-age story about learning to be comfortable with who you are and accepting the impossibility of completely eliminating intolerance. This audiobook, with its realistic portrayals of LGBTQ issues, is appropriate for all ages. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
