Project Main Details

High School voice over  
This is for a multi-media audiobook for young adults (middle school age) that is still being developed. It might still be a while before the book is finished, but we want to start hearing samples. The book won't be too long, but of course, if selected, you are free to work at your own pace within a general timeline. We just ask that you be patient as we get the book together.

The audition script below is the short first chapter (might still be revised before finished draft). Would like the narration to be straightforward and serious, as if talking to an adult audience. This opening part is silly, but the story turns more serious later and Julia really grows as a character. Both Julia and Lisa should have typical teenage girl voices. Julia is a headstrong protagonist, in the style of Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

We really wanna do the best job we can with this project, which is why we're insisting on hearing an audition of this whole segment before making a decision. Thank you and good luck!

Script Details

Please read a portion from the script below for auditions. 
"Julia, can you get the extra iodine on the third floor?" asked Mrs. Figg.
Julia gave a gigantic smile. It was after school and she was helping Mrs. Figg, the science teacher, for extra credit. Julia was a high school junior, 17 years old, class treasurer, and creative writing champion. For the past two years, Julia had unanimously won the yearbook title Most Popular Girl In School, which she hated. After all, she had a brain, and one thing that that brain knew was that her combination of a pretty face and a kind personality had just been the luck of the draw.
But right now Julia was excited. Lorena High School had always had rumors of a mythical third floor that no one ever saw and supposedly had a pool. Now Julia would be the first student, at least in any of the known circles, to actually see it. She nodded and Mrs. Figg opened a door at the back of the classroom that Julia had always assumed was a closet, and now beamed to discover led to a staircase. With another smile, Julia walked by Mrs. Figg and headed up the stairs.
The third floor--wasn't at all what she expected. There was no pool at all, just a tiny, ugly, unfurnished room.
"Ugh, it stinks," Julia muttered out loud, waving her hand over her nose. She quickly found the iodine, kept in a tiny box by the wall, and headed back down to continue her session.
By that evening, her dissappointment had melted away into pride. After all, she had still seen something no other student had.
"I actually set foot on Lorena High School's legendary third floor today," she boasted to her sister Lisa in their room that night.
Lisa, who was only a year younger and knew all the school's rumors, quickly perked up.
"What was it like?"
"Stinky," Julia said, matter-of-factly.
"What do you mean, 'stinky?'"
"I mean it stinks," Julia said, and waved her hand over nose for effect, "It's just a tiny little room, small and dark. Not much to it."
"You were in a place we've all gossiped about, and you have nothing else to say about it?"
Julia thought for a moment, then shrugged. "I don't know. It was stinky. As soon as I was up there, I could smell sweaty socks. I don't know how else to describe it. Just stinky, I guess."
"I don't believe you were even there. The gym is on the first floor on the other side of the building. A room over a science lab wouldn't smell like sweaty socks."
"I know what I smelled," Julia said, "Trust me, I shared a room with you for years, so if there's one scent I'm very familiar with, it's the smell of sweaty socks."
"Very funny."
"Alright, I'll prove it to you. Come with me after school tomorrow."
The next day, Julia went to her usual session in the science lab after school. Around 4pm, Mrs. Figg always called a little break to go the restroom, leaving Julia alone. As soon as she did, Lisa snuck in just as Julia was opening the door, revealing the staircase. Lisa's eyes lit up.
"You were telling the truth!"
She walked up the stairs, and stuck out her nose. (Sniff, sniff).
"You're right, it does stink," she said. (Sniff sniff) "There are definitely sweaty socks up there, but whose are they?"
And before long, Julia was up on the third floor while Lisa kept watch by the door of the science lab.
"I don't see socks up here anywhere," Julia told Lisa on her cell phone. "It really stinks though."
"No sign of Mrs. Figg yet!"
And just as Julia turned, she saw what she was looking for: a pair of stinky socks hidden in a corner. She picked them up with one hand and had to hold her nose with the other. This made it hard to talk on her cell phone, which she pressed with her head against her shoulder.
"I found a pair of socks!"
"Yes! What are they like?"
"They're stinky."
"Anything else?"
"No, just stinky. You'll be able to smell them in a minute."
"Not now, Mrs. Figg is coming!"
Quickly Julia hid the socks in her bag, ran back down, and shut the door behind her, getting there just in time. Mrs. Figg was a little surprised to find Lisa in the room, but had no clue about the door that had just been opened.
Later, the two girls stood in their bedroom, inspecting the socks they'd found, each with their noses held.
"Man, they stink," Lisa said, "I can't breathe."
Julia had already pulled out a notepad and written "Stinky Socks" in big letters at the top. She did all this with one hand since she had to keep her nose held with the other. "Someone has been in the school and broken into the third floor."
"We don't know. We only know one thing about this person: whoever it is, they have stinky feet."
