Narrator Cassandra Campbell portrays a cast of characters from around the world in a work of speculative fiction that addresses the ubiquity of technology. Virtual pets, called "kentukis," allow a stranger from somewhere else in the world to control everything the pet sees, while the owner can choose how much or how little to share. Campbell's narration is immersive. The listener feels transported from Spain to Sweden and to Brazil as she seamlessly slips between the third-person narrative and the dialogue, using accents and inflection to reflect locale and, more importantly, the age of the characters. This story encourages listeners to grapple with how they themselves use technology. A.R.F. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
