Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If there is a hint of Cinderella in this charming story, it s Cinderella in a well-realized real-world setting with appropriate ups and downs, joys and sorrows.” Booklist (starred review)
“The friends are a likable threesome, and readers will be able to identify with being outsiders and wanting to find their place in life.” VOYA
“This joyous, life-affirming novel moves at a brisk pace, hitting the perfect balance between action and introspection…Pulling back the curtain on the glamorous world of drag, this novel explores universal themes of family, friendship, and identity with verve and panache.” School Library Journal
“The author, who has a well-served YouTube fan base in the gay community, turns out to be an outstanding narrator who turns this teen novel about gaining confidence, trusting your friends, and—literally—putting yourself out there into a delightful and nuanced performance of authentic emotions. He keeps genders and the assorted Southern drawls right as the kids drive farther north, meeting unexpectedly sympathetic adults. The story itself may have overly perfect resolutions; in the listening, however, it’s perfect storytelling.” AudioFile
