Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
When Nina decides to take a radio broadcasting class her senior year, she expects it to be a walk in the park. Instead, it's a complete disaster. The members of Nina's haphazardly formed radio team have approximately nothing in common. And to maximize the awkwardness her group includes Jamie, a childhood friend she'd hoped to basically avoid for the rest of her life. The show is a mess, internet rumors threaten to bring the wrath of two fandoms down on their heads, and to top it all off Nina's family is on the brink of some major upheaval. Everything feels like it's spiraling out of control--but maybe control is overrated?

    The radio broadcasting class is supposed to be one of the best electives you can take senior year, so Nina signs up. Of course, her interest is more than passing—her dad is a radio host in California, and since her parents split up when she and her two sisters were young, listening to his show from her home in Indiana is the best way Nina can feel close to him, especially now that her mom is remarrying. But her class radio team just can't seem to get it together. Their show (Sounds of the Nineties) has next to no listeners and they just aren't meshing as a group. It doesn't help that one of the team members is Jamie, Nina's neighbor—they were close until a middle-school falling out, and Nina would really rather avoid him. Mills (Famous in a Small Town, 2019) employs buckets of humor in her supporting cast and peppers Nina's down-to-earth narrative with moments of deep heart. A terrifically appealing venture through the fraught task of connecting with other people. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
