Narrating her own work, Alya Mooro describes the universal awkwardness of growing up in a frank style that is unflinching in her self-disclosure. We wince along with her younger self as she first confronts the fact she is "not white" when her classmates bring up her brown skin. Mooro is a modern woman with an upbringing that reflects our global society. She was born in one country and raised in another yet is fully at home in neither. Her narration mimics her attempts to make sense of a changing world and plural identity; she shares her journey in quick, emphatic, and unceasing anecdotes that draw in the listener. Intense and interesting, this is a memoir that will resonate with expatriates and anyone who has searched for a place to belong. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
