Author Alex Gino narrates their newest middle-grade audiobook with cheerful vivacity. Sam and TJ are two nonbinary kids looking for a project subject who isn't a dead straight cisgender white man (DSCWM) when they stumble on the history of a mostly forgotten queer photographer. With help from their LGBTQIA+ community, they campaign to put Alice Austen on the map. Gino's voicing of Sam is charmingly authentic--the perfect preteen mix of sweetness and stubbornness. Sam's every quicksilver change of feeling is apparent in their tone. Gino also creates an array of engaging character voices for Sam's family, both real and found, and their pedantic history teacher. An author's note recounts Gino's own discovery of Alice Austen and her connection to their childhood home. N.M.
