Publisher's Summary

A funky collection of instant messages, emails, essays, and more takes this hilarious and complex young adult novel to a completely different place than the usual romance-coming out-theater-baseball novel. Classmates T.C., Augie, and Alejandra each have different passions: the Red Sox, musical theater, and acting. They uproariously combine in friendship, love, and a quest to make a special addition to Manzanar, the famed Japanese internment site. Throw in a little Mary Poppins, and things really turn upside-down!Narrators include Eileen Stevens, Ben Rameaka, Jeremy Beck, Peter Ganim, Christian Rummel, Kevin Pariseau, Khristine Hvam, Gayle Hendrix, Allyson Johnson, Marc Vietor, and Jay Snyder.


What the Critics Say

"A big, warmhearted tale about musical theater, political organizing, baseball, friendship and love--opening up the audience to adults as well as teens." (Publisher's Weekly)

Encore! Encore!

I could not have asked for a more exciting time listening to an audiobook. A story written from multiple characters points of view in multiple formats - email, instant messaging, playbills, journals, even sign language. Who knew that the narrators could pull off such an amazing feat, and yet they do. Bravo and brava. It definitely helps that Kluger has written a story that wins over the high school student reader as well as the high school English teacher-reader as well as the YAL junkies (re: me) alike. I want more of the same style because it was a fun ride with characters I could connect to and stories that brought back fun memories of high school. THANKS!
