Nonbinary teen Ben is kicked out of their home after coming out to their parents in this audiobook from an #ownvoices team-up of author and narrator. MW Wilson's voice captures Ben perfectly, bringing them to life as they make a home with their estranged sister and build connections at their new high school. Character voices are not always distinct, and it's sometimes difficult to tell whether Ben is speaking aloud or having an internal dialogue. Still, Wilson does an excellent job depicting Ben's anxiety and trauma with a mix of intense feeling and emotional detachment that rings true. The difficult topics in this audiobook are offset by a sweet and genuine romance and a vision of a healing future for queer youth. H.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
