Jade Wheeler's emotionally attuned narration and stellar characterizations draw listeners into California teen Mahalia Harris's world. She's juggling a part-time job, college prep, and a crush on new Irish student Siobhan, as well as planning an epic coming-out party. As Mahalia struggles to reach her goals, Wheeler's performance deepens the weight of Mahalia's tenuous finances as she accounts for every expense against her earnings. A well-characterized support network of family and friends, including her mother and her best friend, Naomi, helps the classic-rock-loving teen along her journey. Wheeler and Garrett create the perfect team, smoothly evoking Mahalia's joys, frustrations, and ultimate triumph. This audiobook gives listeners a technicolor celebration of love and community.
