Author Catherine Hernandez narrates her own work, set in a dystopian Canada. As fascism arises, people of color, disabled people, and members of the LGBTQ+ community are sent to labor camps. When Kay loses her gig as a drag queen, she doesn't realize that one day she will use a gun to fight for her freedom. Hernandez uses a strong voice and dramatic pacing to elevate her work, but it is marred by her uneven characterizations. There are times when she is completely in character and instances when her portrayal sounds exaggerated. Still, this tense audiobook is timely and relevant--and a reflection of what could happen in a world without diversity. A.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
