by | Read by Pete Cross, Bill Konigsberg [Note]

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Pete Cross portrays two gay teenagers who are coming of age in New York during the height of the AIDS epidemic in this moving, messy, and deeply personal story. Micah is a closeted teen who is desperate for gay friends and experiences; C.J. is a charismatic dancer with a penchant for telling elaborate lies. Cross voices C.J. in a suave, self-assured tone, which he lowers and softens when C.J. finally opens up to Micah. Micah's voice is full of the terror, longing, and confusion of coming out and falling in love during a period of great loss. Konigsberg reads his author's note, in which he reflects on his life as a gay teenager during the same time period. It makes for a poignant end to a beautiful audiobook.
