Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by January LaVoy, Nicky Endres

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

January LaVoy’s and Nicky Endres’s stunning versatile performances in this mystery about a magic school are as alluring as its whodunit plot. A young necromancer at the Galileo Academy for the Extraordinary is drawn to the dead body of the much hated Professor Dropwort. Students across campus—including a werewolf, an arithmetic magician, a supernatural polyglot, a cross-dimensional traveler, and many more—work to solve the case before one of their own is wrongfully blamed for the crime. Written by 18 different authors, the chapters recount the 18 perspectives of queer, trans, and other marginalized students. LaVoy nails each one, as well as the voices of gargoyles, teachers, and law enforcement officers. Endres balances LaVoy’s playful tones with a serious delivery of case evidence. Together, they bring this innovative audiobook to life. A.A.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2023 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
