STAR RATINGS GUIDE
A Big Scoop of Joy
🧡 This warm, fun tale of self-discovery left me smiling. It has an underlying belief in the goodness of people, portrayed by a cast of quirky characters that wouldn’t be out of place in the Gilmore Girls’ Stars’ Hollow. Characters were multi-dimensional rather than seen as heroes versus villains.
💚 A heavier theme, and one I think is handled with care, is that of the realities of LGBTQ+ rights and societal treatment. It gets across the struggles, both daily and lifelong, of having to fight for acceptance for being yourself.
Big thanks to NetGalley and Headline Audio for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 A relaxing listen, easy to follow listen that had me hooked from the very start. Cleverly, the narrator’s accent is different when voicing thoughts than characters, including the main character, a signpost for the listener.
