Day 4: Noteworthy by Riley Redgate (12 Days of Diverse Reads)

Welcome to Day 4 of the 12 Days of Diverse Reads! There's only two more days until Christmas for those who celebrate the holiday!

Today, I'm featuring something that is somewhat related to my own self... because I have indeed done choir in my lifetime.
Me: But my voice is a squeaky little soprano and you might cringe if I actually record myself.
Lupe: Then do it in PERSON. In the years that we have been friends, I've only seen you do a solo with another person when you were a freshman.
Lo and behold, Noteworthy by Riley Redgate!

It’s the start of Jordan Sun’s junior year at the Kensington-Blaine Boarding School for the Performing Arts. Unfortunately, she’s an Alto 2, which—in the musical theatre world—is sort of like being a vulture in the wild: She has a spot in the ecosystem, but nobody’s falling over themselves to express their appreciation. So it’s no surprise when she gets shut out of the fall musical for the third year straight.

Then the school gets a mass email: A spot has opened up in the Sharpshooters, Kensington’s elite a cappella octet. Worshiped ... revered ... all male. Desperate to prove herself, Jordan auditions in her most convincing drag, and it turns out that Jordan Sun, Tenor 1, is exactly what the Sharps are looking for.
