Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A necessary read that favors compassion and understanding.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“A rom-com with heart and purpose.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrators Theo Germaine and Phoebe Strole deliver a poignant coming-of-age romance. Pony [is] warmly voiced by Germaine…[with] Georgia voiced by Strole…Strole’s easygoing pace and light, youthful timbre complement Georgia’s introspectiveness as she balances her budding feelings for Pony and coming to terms with his trans identity. This emotionally charged audiobook pulls no punches while exploring trans issues.” AudioFile
