BETWEEN PERFECT AND REAL

by | Read by MW Cartozian Wilson

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

The theme of self-discovery drives this realistic audiobook featuring Dean, a high school thespian who has recently realized he is transgender. Playing Romeo in a nontraditional school production of ROMEO AND JULIET inspires Dean to recognize that masculinity isn't just a role for him--it's what he is. So he begins the complicated and ever-continuing process of coming out as trans. MW Cartozian Wilson narrates Dean's story in husky, serious tones, shifting easily into deadpan humor and high-stakes emotions. Other characters' voices are mostly understated, allowing Dean's voice and perspective to take center stage. Trans listeners hoping for a sense of authenticity will find it here, and listeners of all kinds will root for Dean as he grows into his true self and looks to the future.
