Listeners are in for a romp around New York City when disgraced teen starlet Evie Jones arrives at her famous grandmother's doorstep, looking for one last chance to save her career. Narrator Shayna Small evokes Evie's easy confidence and West Coast attitude, which are shattered when she discovers that her grandmother has run away. Small also channels the grace and wisdom of Evie's grandmother, who was a movie star in her day. Small removes years from her voice as Evie explores scenes from her grandmother's past. In these moments Small's performance conveys the warmth and love of their tight bond. Evie scours the city with Milo, a young musician whose bandmates bring plenty of boisterous energy and humor to the narration. Family and new friendships make this a romantic and heartfelt listen.
