Amielynn Abellera energetically narrates this hyperkinetic, surreal YA adventure set in 1984. When Hollywood comes to Griffin Flat, Arkansas, sarcastic Laura Ratliff is excited to win a walk-on role in the movie EVE OF DESTRUCTION despite her genuine fears about the possibility of nuclear war. When an on-set explosion triggers a possible nuclear incident, Laura faces a whole new set of problems. Abellera's theatrical delivery and exaggerated accents are perfect for this high-concept examination of how our worst enemies are sometimes ourselves. She highlights the audiobook's footnotes, which are mostly insights on the 1980s for contemporary YA listeners. This story has no intention of taking itself seriously, and Abellera nails its black humor. N.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
