Summary
  • When Carey Parker, a genderqueer teen who dreams of being a diva like their hero Mariah Carey, is cast as the female lead in the school musical, they must fight against discrimination and injustice from their closed-minded school administration
  • Carey Parker dreams of being a diva, and bringing the house down with song. They can hit every note of all the top pop and Broadway hits, but emotional scars from an incident with a homophobic classmate and their grandmother's spiraling dementia make it harder and harder for Carey to find their voice. Cris, a singer/guitarist, makes Carey feel seen for the first time in their life. With the rush of a promising new romantic relationship, Carey finds the confidence to audition for the role of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, in the school musical. This sets off a chain reaction of prejudice by Carey's tormentor and others in the school. Carey, Cris, and their friends need to defend their rights-- and they refuse to be silenced. -- adapted from jacket
