Narrator Adenrele Ojo guides listeners on a journey of love, loss, and family as the coming-of-age stories of mother and daughter Marilyn and Angie are told 18 years apart. In the present day, teenaged Angie sets off on a road trip with her ex-boyfriend to look for answers to her mother's past and her African-American roots in California. Ojo taps into the tension as the exes struggle to reconcile their broken relationship while capturing the uncertainty of the mission they are beginning. In a voice reminiscent of Angie's--but wholly unique--Ojo takes listeners back to the '90s as teenaged Marilyn, an aspiring photographer and reluctant actress, begins a romance with her neighbor that ends in a tragedy. The devastation of that event is is heightened by Ojo's emotional commitment to her narration. J.E.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
