Marva Sheridan was born ready for this day. She's always been driven to make a difference in the world, and what better way than to vote in her first election?
Duke Crenshaw is so done with this election. He just wants to get voting over with so he can prepare for his band's first paying gig tonight.
Only problem? Duke can't vote.
When Marva sees Duke turned away from their polling place, she takes it upon herself to make sure his vote is counted. She hasn't spent months doorbelling and registering voters just to see someone denied their right.
And that's how their whirlwind day begins, rushing from precinct to precinct, cutting school, waiting in endless lines, turned away time and again, trying to do one simple thing: vote.
They may have started out as strangers, but as Duke and Marva team up to beat a rigged system (and find Marva's missing cat), it's clear that there's more to their connection than a shared mission for democracy.
What the critics say
"The duet performance ensures that listeners will fall for Marva and Duke even as they're falling for each other; Hite is especially convincing and appealing as Duke. With this novel, Colbert delivers a satisfying blend of character development and lessons about voter suppression, grief, and activism." (AudioFile magazine)

I vote yes for the Voting Booth!
This was a really cute YA love story that touched on some very serious social issues but with a deftness that highlights their importance to the characters without taking away from the light-hearted romance budding between the two lead characters.

I shed tears
loved this audiobook. I was amazed that I actually shed some tears while listening to a story about trying to vote.
