Young Adult Ages 12+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

The events of this audiobook unfold over the course of a single election day as two Black teens vote for the first time. Robin Eller voices Marva, who is first in line at her polling place. She meets Duke, voiced by Cary Hite, when the poll workers can't find Duke's name on the registration list. Making sure his vote gets counted leads them on a long and winding journey during which Marva's internet-famous cat goes missing and Duke worries about making it to his band's gig. The duet performance ensures that listeners will fall for Marva and Duke even as they're falling for each other; Hite is especially convincing and appealing as Duke. With this novel, Colbert delivers a satisfying blend of character development and lessons about voter suppression, grief, and activism.
