Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Greta Jung

Children Ages 10+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Greta Jung's exuberant voice captures the honesty, humor, and conflict in Kim's poignant narrative. Yumi's hardworking immigrant parents want her to attend Hogwan on a prestigious scholarship, but when she stumbles into a comedy camp led by her favorite YouTuber, she can't stop herself from joining. Jung's pacing captures Yumi's stress and exhilaration as she struggles to balance her dreams and her family's expectations. Precise characterizations shine in conversations between Yumi and her parents, sister, and friends. The story explores cultures as characters work to understand one another and Yumi seeks to find her voice. As the action builds to a stirring conclusion, Jung's delivery and Kim's writing are a winning combination. K.S.M.
