This first-person account of Jonny Valentine, a young pop star reminiscent of Justin Bieber, is warm, smart, charming, and, best of all, believable. Narrator Kirby Heyborne handles the story’s many characters with distinction. His portrayal of Jonny makes listeners feel like they're at his side throughout the concert tour. Jonny is wise beyond his 11 years and honest when he messes up or observes his mom looking "old and tired." Heyborne's voice softens when Jonny reads from his mother's computer as she sleeps and expresses exuberance when he plays a childhood tickle game. He also strikes the right tone when Jonny shares industry information or reads concert reviews. Audio is the perfect vehicle for this story. Listeners of all ages will enjoy this glimpse into a life most of us can only imagine. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2013]
