Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Cindy Kay

Science Fiction • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Cindy Kay masterfully narrates this unique audiobook, which combines a variety of genres to tell a moving story of self-acceptance and finding safety even in the bleakest of times. At the core, are Katrina Nguyen, a trans girl who has run away from home to become a musician; Shizuka Satomi, a renowned violin teacher who has made a deal with hell; and Lan Tran, a starship captain who has secreted her family on Earth to protect them from an interspace war. Kay's melodic voice draws the characters' passions and fears to the forefront, and her spot-on pacing and respectful, authentic accents further strengthen listeners' empathy. Note: Among her descriptions of music and budding friendships, author Aoki also addresses the violent side of Katrina's transition experiences. C.B.L.
