Angst, ambition, and video game politics collide in this contemporary YA audiobook featuring dual narrators Richa Shukla Moorjani and Sunil Malhotra. When celebrity streamer Divya meets aspiring game writer Aaron inside the online space exploration game Reclaim the Sun, they begin a gradually deepening relationship that encourages both to stand up to hateful trolls, parental pressure, and gatekeeping within gaming culture. Moorjani brings a winning combination of grit, passion, and wry humor to the guarded Divya, while Malhotra imbues Aaron with earnest, affable dorkiness. Both narrators handle introspection and blow-by-blow gameplay with equal assurance, and listeners will relish the way the characters' in-game chats become conversations between the two narrators. A solid choice for fans of YA realism, with special appeal for gamers. R.A.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
