Sophie Amoss's superb narration enhances the raw and electric prose of author Sarah Gerard's second novel. The blunt force of 20-something Nina's reckless behavior comes through in Amoss's almost careless tone and unforced pacing. Amoss engages the listener's sympathy for the impetuous, erratic Nina even while conveying the explicit details of her involvement with several remarkably unsuitable young men. Amoss creates a vivid portrait of Nina's circuitous route to self-acceptance through her writing; therapy sessions; conversations with her messed-up best friend, Odessa; and struggles to understand her neglectful and critical mother. Amoss's compelling performance guides listeners through the visceral appeal of this audiobook, allowing listeners to empathize with Nina amid her frequent missteps and bad decisions. M.J.
