Each book is labeled with the Accelerated Reading program information (title, author, AR level, quiz points, and quiz number) right on the cover/spine so that students and teachers can find it Rating: % positive. Jane Zhang soul voice: At Last. Jane loves to explore new styles of music and R&B/Soul is among her favorites. Born a memorable rendition of At Last.   The Secret Voice of Gina Zhang is for readers aged 10 – 12, the perfect age for the kind of great children’s literature I remember from my childhood. Xanadu is for older readers; I often say ages 15 to I initially wrote it for adults, and then I made some minor changes so it would fit in the ‘young adult’ category.
