In this audiobook a school drama club is in the midst of staging ONCE UPON A MATTRESS. In short order, a shared crush tangles up the bond between aspiring thespian Kate and her equally stagestruck BFF, Anderson. As if this sudden romantic rivalry isn't confusing enough, Kate also realizes that her goofy jock classmate, Noah, might not be the "f-boy" she has assumed he is. Narrator Bebe Wood channels the spirit of theater-geek adolescence in her skillful performance. Deftly modulating her tone and speed, she draws listeners into the full range of Kate's emotions: enthusiastic chutzpah, cringey naïveté, Instagram-generation cynicism, and soft, sweet sincerity. Listeners-- especially author Albertalli's many fans--will want to give this audiobook a rousing ovation. R.A.H. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
