Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Redgate deftly harmonizes a lighthearted plot with an exploration of privilege, identity, and personal agency... A heart song for all readers who have ever felt like strangers in their own skins." --Kirkus
**STARRED REVIEW**
"A smart critique of gender roles--male and female--in today's society... delightfully wrapped up in a fun, compelling package of high-school rivalries, confusing romances, and a classic Shakespearean case of mistaken identity."--Booklist
"Setting and plot delightfully incorporate the arts, with themes of romance and self-awareness woven in... This fun novel pushes against gender norms and will resonate with many teens."--School Library Journal
"It is refreshing to read a story about someone dressing as the opposite sex and not have the main tension be about someone finding out... This is not a story of having to hide who you are, but rather a story of finding who you are."--School Library Connection
"Redgate vividly captures the world of a cappella, and she uses Jordan's soul-searching--as well as her family's financial struggles...to bring freshness and substantial depth to a gender-bending/mistaken identity plot that has a long history in literature and theater."--Publishers Weekly
**STARRED REVIEW**

"Like her visual arts students at Kensington, Redgate crafts her characters with delicate lines and strong shadows within a phase of life that is anything but gentle."--Shelf Awareness
