Description

"Not only is this queer rom-com audiobook PERFECT ON PAPER—it's also perfect on audio...The wonderful writing coupled with [Barrie] Kreinik's execution makes this a spectacular audiobook." — AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner
In Sophie Gonzales' Perfect on Paper, Leah on the Offbeat meets To All the Boys I've Loved Before: a bisexual girl who gives anonymous love advice to her classmates is hired by the hot guy to help him get his ex back

Her advice, spot on. Her love life, way off.

Darcy Phillips:

  • Can give you the solution to any of your relationship woes—for a fee.
  • Uses her power for good. Most of the time.
  • Really cannot stand Alexander Brougham.
  • Has maybe not the best judgement when it comes to her best friend, Brooke...who is in love with someone else.
  • Does not appreciate being blackmailed.
    However, when Brougham catches her in the act of collecting letters from locker 89—out of which she's been running her questionably legal, anonymous relationship advice service—that's exactly what happens. In exchange for keeping her secret, Darcy begrudgingly agrees to become his personal dating coach—at a generous hourly rate, at least. The goal? To help him win his ex-girlfriend back.
    Darcy has a good reason to keep her identity secret. If word gets out that she's behind the locker, some things she's not proud of will come to light, and there's a good chance Brooke will never speak to her again.
    Okay, so all she has to do is help an entitled, bratty, (annoyingly hot) guy win over a girl who's already fallen for him once? What could go wrong?
    A Macmillan Audio production from Wednesday Books
    "Perfectly wonderful." —Becky Albertalli, New York Times–bestselling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

          Gr 9 Up-Most people know Darcy Phillips as the science teacher's daughter and a junior at St. Deodetus School. They don't know that she has a secret: She is the person behind Locker 89, the wildly popular relationship advice column. She is anonymous until she is caught by Alexander Brougham, a senior boy who wants her to coach him on how to win back his girlfriend. Missteps and communication lapses ensue, which provide both comedic relief and dramatic moments. Issues of sexuality, morality, truth, friendship, biphobia, and confidentiality all play major roles in the story. Darcy is bisexual and in love with her best friend, Brooke, who is a lesbian; Darcy's sibling is transitioning; and the school's Queer and Questioning Club plays an integral part in the story. Barrie Kreinik's skill with accents and voice differentiation makes it wonderfully clear who is speaking. Darcy in particular is read with a friendly approachability that makes her instantly relatable. Although Locker 89 makes her the Queen of Relationship Advice, Darcy feels confusion and despair about her own relationships-conveyed deftly via Kreinik's empathetic portrayal. Darcy and Alexander are white; Brooke is Asian American. VERDICT Give this to your listeners who like romances with substance.-Julie Paladino, formerly with East Chapel Hill H.S., NC
