Narrators Bahni Turpin and Janina Edwards trade off the saucy short stories in this collection. Their liveliness will have listeners laughing out loud at the audacity of the characters. Portraying a range of people from teenagers who prank unsuspecting adults on the metro to girls who compete to win piano recitals, the narrators work together to create this portrait of African-Americans in Maryland. We experience the ups and downs of gentrification through Turpin and Edwards's creative styles. They move smoothly from male characters to female ones with believable voices and cadences. Whether they're depicting sassy women or deep-voiced men, this is a quick listen as the stories are told at a rapid-fire pace, creating an enjoyable experience throughout.
