Description

A sweet, funny contemporary teen romance for the inner geek in all of us from graphic novelist Faith Erin Hicks. Miriam's family should be rich. After all, her grandfather was the co-creator of smash-hit comics series The TomorrowMen. But he sold his rights to the series to his co-creator in the 1960s for practically nothing, and now that's what Miriam has: practically nothing. And practically nothing to look forward to either-how can she afford college when her family can barely keep a roof above their heads? As if she didn't have enough to worry about, Miriam's life gets much more complicated when a cute boy shows up in town...?nd turns out to be the grandson of the man who defrauded Miriam's grandfather, and heir to the TomorrowMen fortune. In her endearing debut audiobook, cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks delivers a sensitive and funny Romeo and Juliet tale about modern romance, geek royalty, and what it takes to heal the long-festering scars of the past (Spoiler Alert: love).

Professional reviews

"This contemporary story, narrated by Carly Robins, is inspired by ROMEO AND JULIET. It's clear that Nova Scotian Miriam Kendrick should not fall for Californian Weldon Warrick. Decades ago, Weldon's grandfather purchased the rights to the TomorrowMen comic series for a paltry sum, leaving his co-creator--Miriam's grandfather--with nothing when the series became a worldwide success. While the teen characters sound age appropriate, Robins's portrayal of their parents often sound like caricatures of adults. Generic accents belie the story's Canadian setting, and uneven pacing keeps the listener from engaging with the story. Unlike Robins's previous performances, her delivery does not sound authentic. This audiobook is one to skip. A.L.S.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
