It takes a bit of adjustment to get into this tale of a musical prodigy/transgender runaway meeting a teacher with a daemon from hell on track to collect her or her student's soul but all can be changed by the space aliens in their doughnut shop/space portal, but it is worth it. Cindy Kay's narration of the audio book is great.

An odd blend of science fiction and fantasy with happily-ever-after endings for everyone (well, everyone we care about anyway). Though it deals with some heavy topics—a trans girl running away from an abusive father, an intergalactic plague of existential despair, a woman about to lose her soul—it’s unrelentingly upbeat. The transformational power of music makes everything right in the end. In fact, if there had been just little bit more sadness, a touch more of the underlying tragedies, it would have been a more affecting book. As it was, it seemed a little too light to be a great book for me.… (mais)

Astonishingly good! To read the synopsis is to miss the whole point of the book, which are meditations and observations what it means to be ourselves and how we treat others. This will be a book I will be recommending to a great many people. Consider yourself forewarned. :)
[Audiobook note: the reader, Cindy Kay, is amazing. I will be looking for other readings by her as soon as I finish writing this note.]
