“Not only is this queer rom-com audiobook PERFECT ON PAPER–it’s also perfect on audio. Narrator Barrie Kreinik portrays a diverse cast of lesbian, gay, trans, and straight characters. Bisexual high school junior Darcy Phillips runs an anonymous relationship advice service through Locker 89 at her school, despite having never been in a romantic relationship herself. When Alexander Brougham catches her emptying the locker, she reluctantly agrees to help him win back his ex-girlfriend. Kreinik’s pace is steady; her character portrayals are real and relatable. Overall, her performance is flawless as she slips comfortably into various accents and tonalities. The plot is predictable but deliciously fun with its layers of emotions and complex relationships. The wonderful writing coupled with Kreinik’s execution makes this a spectacular audiobook. E.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]“
