TRYOUTS The Brinkley Yearbooks, Book 2

by | Read by Emmett Grosland, Felisha Wong, Davu Smith, GM Hakim, Valerie Rose Lohman, Dan Crane, Mirai, Seth Fuentes, Jay Myers, Robbie Daymond, and a full cast

Children Ages 8+ • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Em Grosland takes center stage as Al in this full-cast sequel to PICTURE DAY. The titular tryouts refer to the Brinkley Martians baseball team, which has never had a girl in its lineup. Talented catcher Al is the first, but the outsized--and unwelcome--attention she attracts threatens the team's cohesion. Lessons of teamwork and persistence ground the story, while swiftly paced dialogue adds humor. Greg Vinciguerra as Al's little brother, Theo, an aspiring play-by-play announcer, steals many scenes. In a subplot, Al's friend Viv (voiced by Felisha Wong) tries to resurrect Brinkley's former mascot, a goose, whose full hideousness will be best appreciated by kids who listen along with the print edition of this graphic novel. A solid hit. V.S. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2024]
