Jeena Yi is the ideal narrator for this stunning debut audiobook, which dramatizes the restless nature of adolescence. Yi superbly evokes a pregnant 18-year-old's kaleidoscope of emotions, which swing from unease about her present circumstances to complicated grief over the loss of her alcoholic father and impatience with her caring mother and supportive live-in boyfriend. Pizza Girl's unsettled existence is complicated by the older, married Jenny, whom the book's protagonist meets at her pizza delivery job. Yi expertly conveys Jenny's melodious timbre and confiding manner, which mesmerize the confused but sympathetic Pizza Girl. Yi's pitch-perfect narration keeps listeners entranced until the final moments of this explosive audiobook. A page-turner that listeners will want to start for a second time as soon as they have completed their first listen. M.J.
