Narrator Emily Woo Zeller provides a masterful storytelling experience as she takes listeners from the wilds of China to the hustle and bustle of WWII-era Los Angeles. This coming-of-age story is also lushly written historical fiction with inspirational elements. Genie Baker is forced to flee from the only home and family she's ever known to the other side of the world in order to escape the danger of the Japanese military. Throughout the narrative, Zeller delivers heartrending scenes and inspires such dislike for several secondary characters that listeners will be loath putting down their headphones. This is an enduring story of the strength of a young woman in the face of overwhelming adversity. A.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
