SELF-MADE BOYS A Great Gatsby Remix

by | Read by Avi Roque, Kyla Garcia

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Avi Roque is the primary narrator of this GREAT GATSBY remix. Nicolás, a transgender Latino boy, moves to New York to start his career. His cousin, Daisy, arranges his rental, which is next to the home of the infamous Jay Gatsby, also transgender, who is known for his dazzling parties. Roque's vocal versatility integrates several accents and genders, along with occasional Spanish words. Their careful pacing and emotional connection enhance the audiobook's lyrical prose, enchanting listeners throughout this slow-burn romance. Kyla Garcia narrates the periodic letters Daisy sends to her family and friends as she updates them on her dreams and realizations with a posh accent that belies her true heritage, an appropriate choice for a Latina woman who is trying to pass for white.
