What to read after... Dread Wood 28/02/24
Having won a scholarship to an exclusive boarding school for the performing arts, Jordan thought her struggle to pursue her dreams was almost over. But when she fails (once again) to be cast in the school musical, she is forced to resort to unconventional tactics to make her mark.
Presenting herself as Julian, Jordan successfully auditions for an all-male a capella group and not only becomes tangled in the complications of juggling two identities, but is forced to consider what it means to be female, male and, ultimately, herself.
A refreshingly complex story of self-discovery that also explores issues of culture-clash, sexuality and the conventions of gender. A mature, entertaining and satisfying read.
