This audiobook is a plethora of voices coming together to represent the diversity of contemporary America. Actor America Ferrera begins with an account of her childhood as the daughter of Latino immigrants. Ferrera is confident, articulate, and measured as she tells of losing her first love to a blonde, blue-eyed classmate. She sets the tone for the slew of prominent essayists who follow, including Broadway composer Lin-Manuel Miranda and Olympic skater Michelle Kwan, among many others. They regale us with their personal experiences of establishing unique identities within a constantly shifting sense of self. An equally talented cast of narrators candidly delivers the disappointments of childhood, encounters with discrimination, and growing awareness of the world. Segments range from two minutes to much longer. This is an audiobook to savor. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
