THE EXTRAORDINARIES The Extraordinaries, Book 1

by | Read by Michael Lesley

Fantasy • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Michael Lesley's upbeat narration captures all the whimsy, humor, and heart of this YA superhero romp. Nick has been nursing a crush on Shadow Star, Nova City's most famous superhero, for years. He's even the author of one of the most popular Extraordinaries fanfics. But when he decides to become an Extraordinary himself to catch Shadow Star's attention, he learns a lot more about love, friendship, and himself than he anticipated. Lesley expertly voices all of Nick's teenage angst and does an expert job with the secondary characters. Nick's father is gruff and warm; his ex-boyfriend, Owen, is a bit haughty; and the Extraordinaries have powerful larger-than-life voices. This sweet queer coming-of-age story will please listeners looking for something fun, surprising, and affirming. L.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
