Listeners will definitely want to cast their vote for Liz Lighty in this debut audiobook for teens. Narrator Alaska Jackson's relaxed, natural-sounding delivery makes Liz instantly relatable. She might not seem like prom queen material at her wealthy Indiana high school, but Liz is determined to win the crown because it comes with a scholarship that will ensure she can attend the college music program of her dreams. She's also dealing with changing friendships, her little brother's sickle cell disease, and the fact that she just might be falling for the new girl at school. Jackson doesn't always differentiate between characters, which can make conversations hard to follow, or match her narration to cues in the text. But the story, like Liz, is a winner. Hollywood, make this the next teen movie classic. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
