Sandhya Menon’s THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT SWEETIE is on AudioFile’s list of 2019 Best Young Adult Audiobooks. Narrator Vikas Adam joins AudioFile’s Michele Cobb to share what he loved about co-narrating this YA audiobook romance along with Soneela Nankani. Vikas gives voice to the mixed feelings of Ashish Patel, a high school basketball star who has just been dumped by his college girlfriend. Ashish gives in to his parents’ pressure to try arranged dating, and their pick is Sweetie, narrated by Soneela Nanakani. The two narrators create a tender story of self-discovery. Published by Simon & Schuster Audio.
