Narrating alternating chapters, Michael Crouch and Tiya Sircar are just as appealing as the pair of Georgia teens they portray. Jamie and Maya are thrown together while canvassing for a local candidate. Crouch is endearingly awkward as Jamie, who's nervous about knocking on doors--but that's nothing compared to the idea of giving a speech at his little sister's bat mitzvah. Sircar conveys Maya's sunny personality as well as her vulnerability as she struggles with her parents' separation during Ramadan while also feeling estranged from her best friend. Their campaign work turns into passionate activism when a discriminatory bill is introduced in the Georgia legislature. Listeners will be equally invested in the progression of Jamie and Maya's relationship and the outcome of the election. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
