First of all, this is one of those books that leave you thinking about long after you finish-at least, in my case. I’m not much of a singer, but I was hooked to this book almost immediately! So, just to ensure I don’t spoil too much, I’ll just…..um……copy the blurb right from the book. 🙂
“Jordan Sun is embarking on her junior year at the Kensington-Blaine Boarding School for the Performing Arts, hopeful that this will be her time: the year she finally gets cast in the school musical. But when her low Alto 2 voice gets her shut out for the third straight year—threatening her future at Kensington-Blaine and jeopardizing her college applications—she’s forced to consider nontraditional options.
In Jordan’s case, really nontraditional. A spot has opened up in the Sharpshooters, Kensington’s elite a cappella octet. Worshiped…revered…all male. Desperate to prove herself, Jordan auditions in her most convincing drag, and it turns out that Jordan Sun, Tenor 1, is exactly what the Sharps are looking for.
Jordan finds herself enmeshed in a precarious juggling act: making friends, alienating friends, crushing on a guy, crushing on a girl, and navigating decades-old rivalries. With her secret growing heavier every day, Jordan pushes beyond gender norms to confront what it means to be a girl (and a guy) in a male-dominated society, and—most importantly—what it means to be herself.”
Well, there ya go. This book is way more than just a fluffy, cute story about a girl with a deep voice who attends a performing arts boarding school and falls in love with some other really cool guy. This book has mysteries at every flip of the page, and it keep you guessing until the very end….and even after! 😛 I just know you guys will all enjoy this book too! 🙂
