Vico Ortiz's acting talent comes through with flying colors as they narrate this coming-of-age queer mystery. Ortiz deftly engages the listener with multiple distinct voices, capturing the age, personality, and full emotional range of each character. Their narration brings the story to life as high schooler Bianca wrestles with gender identity, navigating their numerous (and catalogued) fears, all the while seeking to discover who murdered their neighbor. (Think REAR WINDOW.) Making sense of what they witnessed through their telescope echoes the theme of making sense of their own place in the world. Winans's story, full of real-life questions and a fanciful murder mystery will satisfy many different types of listeners. C.F.
