Note WorthyBook - 2017
Jordan Sun is embarking on her junior year at the Kensington-Blaine Boarding School for the Performing Arts, hopeful that this year will be her year to finally get cast in the school musical. But when her low Alto 2 voice gets her shut out for the third straight year she's forced to consider nontraditional options. A spot has opened up in Kensington's elite a cappella octet. Worshipped. . .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 group is looking for. She finds herself emeshed 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 everyday, 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.
