Khristine Hvam does a stellar narration of this young adult epistolary novel featuring a quirky, troubled teen. After Brynn's older brother died from a drug overdose, her grades plummeted, taking her from honors courses to the applied academics classes located in the basement of her high school. When a class assignment requires her to write to a personal hero, she chooses Rachel Maddow. Saving the messages as drafts, her emails become a personal journal, describing emotional abuse from her mother and stepfather, political intrigue at school, and the aftermath of her brother's death. Hvam's portrayal of Brynn is spot-on, breathing life into the character's personality. Even with the serious subject matter, Hvam delivers an engaging performance. A.L.S.M.
