Narrators Jayme Mattler and Emily Lawrence shine in this novel about first love and self-discovery amid the gay activism of the late 1970s. Mattler portrays Tammy, a closeted lesbian living with her conservative family in Orange County. Mattler's low voice, whether clouded with pain or brisk with determination, embodies the confusion and exuberance of queer coming-of-age. Lawrence is equally compelling as Sharon, a San Francisco teenager keeping her brother's sexuality a secret from their Catholic mother. At first, Lawrence's voice is quiet, but as Sharon comes into herself, it becomes stronger, overflowing with rage and hope. Told entirely through letters and journal entries, and brimming with warmth, honesty, and the beat of punk music, this audiobook brings two unforgettable teenagers to life.
