Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrators Rebekkah Ross and Gabra Zackman create a memorable portrait of 16-year-old Maddy, who delights in classical music, animation, and her family and friends, but who has been diagnosed with cancer. In a sweet and intelligent tone, Ross captures Maddy's efforts to live in the present moment and her ability to revel in her strong bond with her supportive mother, Eve; her kindly maternal grandparents; her lively school friends; and her caring boyfriend. Zackman expertly conveys the roller coaster of Eve's emotions, which swing from hopefulness to anguish. In an intriguing subplot, Maddy's excitement and apprehensions are revealed when she initiates an email correspondence with her biological father, Antonio, whom she has never met. An immersive and powerful exploration of love, friendship, and grief. M.J. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
