Narrator Kamali Minter establishes a passionate voice for Nira, a teen who moved as a child from Guyana to Canada with her parents and grandmother. Now she struggles to find balance between her homelife with her family and her school life with her peers. Nira wishes to be a trumpet player, but her parents do not approve because they fear it will distract her from academic success. Minter expertly transitions between the Canadian accents of Nira's schoolmates and the Guyanese accents of Nira's family members. Teen listeners will be drawn to Nira and her strength as she works to follow her dreams--but also win the approval of her family. M.D. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
