Description-

  • Seventeen-year-old Zelda Bailey-Cho has her future all planned out: improv camp, then Second City, and finally Saturday Night Live. She's thrilled when she lands a spot on the coveted varsity team at a prestigious improv camp, which means she'll get to perform for professional scouts—including her hero, Nina Knightley. But even though she's hardworking and talented, Zelda's also the only girl on Varsity, so she's a target for humiliation from her teammates. And her twenty-year-old coach Ben is cruel to her at practice and way too nice to her when they're alone... Zelda wants to fight back, but is sacrificing her best shot at her dream too heavy a price to pay?

    March 2, 2020
    Seventeen-year-old Zelda Bailey-Cho is ready to spend her summer at a prominent Colorado improv camp with her stepbrother, Will, and his boyfriend. Landing a spot on the camp’s varsity team is the first step toward her goal of landing on SNL by age 25, but she quickly realizes the camp, while founded by a notable female comic, is rife with sexism and toxic masculinity. Out of 200 campers, only five—Zelda’s bunkmates in counselor-less cabin Gilda Radner—are female; Zelda is the first to make varsity in 15 years. Ben, the 20-year-old varsity coach, shows an immediate interest in Zelda, which both flatters and unsettles her, but it seems harmless next to the constant sexism and sexual innuendo of her varsity teammates. As the general harassment intensifies, and Zelda becomes increasingly alarmed by Ben’s erratic behavior and gaslighting, her growing bond with her cabinmates and with a few Boy Scout troop guides from the neighboring camp allows for moments of connection and romance. Kronzer excels at balancing humor with difficult subjects, portraying sexism and toxic masculinity in comedy with appropriate gravity while celebrating positive, healthy relationships and growth through active choices. Ages 14–up. Agent: Sara Crowe, Pippin Properties.

  • AudioFile Magazine Nicole Kronzer shines in her debut as author and narrator of this spunky YA drama laced with humor. Zelda Bailey-Cho's enthusiasm for improv summer camp is crushed by the toxic bro culture of the elite varsity team and its predatory coach. Kronzer voices the plot and the realistic characters with gusto. The combination of vulnerability and snark in Zelda's tone creates a heroine who illuminates the way girls find themselves swallowed up in abusive situations, one rationalization at a time. A diverse group of campers helps Zelda save herself, though it's clear the processing and healing will take time. Through these allies and friends, Kronzer shows how to craft a more compassionate world. S.T.C. � AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine
