Eileen Stevens's youthfully vibrant narration perfectly complements this audiobook, set in the New York independent music scene of the 1990s. The audio format suits Zink's inventive language, which is beautifully delivered by Stevens. Her gift for characterization is evident in her nuanced portrayals of a trio of friends--Joe, Daniel, and Pam--who form a lasting bond after connecting through music. She sensitively conveys the maturing voice of Pam and Daniel's daughter, Flora, who becomes interested in environmental activism. While much of the narration moves at the spirited pace of young lives, Stevens slows the tempo to one of somber contemplation when depicting the events of 9/11. An intriguing listen, full of nostalgia for the recent past and questions about the future. M.J. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
