Narrators Mimi Chang and Josh Hurley bring youthful energy to an unlikely friendship in this audiobook set in the 1980s. Ro, who is half-Chinese, is a new student and a total science nerd. Benji is artistic, obsessed with comic books, and doodles all day. Still, Benji promises to help Ro finish her rocket, and Ro offers to help Benji find his long-lost famous father. The chapters are told from alternating points of view, and both Chang's and Hurley's performances are bursting with a heartfelt innocence. As Benji and Ro face bullying and loss, this fresh narration makes their growth palpable and tugs on listeners' heartstrings as they forge a special friendship.
