Maulik Pancholy narrates his charming middle grade audiobook with love and enthusiasm. Nikhil's mom moves his family from L.A. to his grandparents' house in Ohio, taking him far from his best friend and his job--he's a voice acting star on a hit cartoon. Nikhil finds welcoming friends, lands a nerve-racking lead role in the middle school musical, crushes on a cute boy--and is targeted by harassing parents who are against having a gay student lead the school play. Pancholy's animated voice rockets listeners through all the emotions--and vocal changes--as Nikhil struggles with performing on stage and behind the mic, worries about his grandfather's health and those bullying adults, and, ultimately, finds his way forward--with an outpouring of loving support from the community.
