None of the Above
“This is a great audio for older teens or adults, the sex content would be overwhelming for a younger teen. The frank discussion of sexuality and gender after a life-changing diagnosis of AIS (one of the many conditions under the intersex umbrella) is wonderfully refreshing. The author is "outed" by a series of unfortunate responses to her news and has to grapple with her newly discovered diagnosis and all that it comes with while being bullied at her high school. She soon discovers her tribe and begins to gain confidence in being perfect, just as she is. The audio really captures the teen voice without feeling too young, like listening to your 18 year old best friend tell you all her secret thoughts.”Genavieve, Books & Company

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue
Montague Siblings: Book #1
“The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee was truly a pleasure to hear! A deliciously dry sense of humor pervades this tale of English landed gentry making a tour of the Continent in the 1800s. However, this is no ordinary tour and these no ordinary lords. Unrequited love among the two male protagonists, a racial twist, parental abuse, maladies with no cures and more pervade this fast paced, adventurous novel complete with highwaymen, dukes, alchemy and pirates (sort of). Impossible to stop listening and extremely entertaining!”Phyllis, Wellesley Books
Inspired by Judy Blume’s Forever and Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway, this novel that Andrew Smith calls “beautiful, enchanting, [and] exquisitely written” is a new classic about teenage relationships, self-acceptance—and what happens when the walls we build start coming down. A Kirkus Best Book of 2017!
