Frankie Corzo and Mark Sanderlin alternately narrate this innovative gothic thriller with a twist that involves South American mythology. Fleeing the city, 18-year-old Mavi accepts a teaching gig at the famed but haunted Vaccaro School in the south of Argentina. And then, a spirit named Angel possesses a young man in order to befriend her. Soon, they develop a friendship, but her uncovering of the school's secrets, along with Angel's revelations, forces her on a journey of self-discovery and liberation. Corzo's powerful voice and varied tone propel the suspenseful narrative. Sanderlin's voice is charming but could use stronger vocal characterizations to effectively portray a host of young characters. The story's anticlimactic ending is disappointing, but the work of both narrators redeems this audiobook. A.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
