This blend of romance and sports is told from dual perspectives. Narrator Joniece Abbott-Pratt voices Carli, a reluctant but gifted high school basketball player whose parents are in the middle of a messy divorce. Preston Butler uses a sonorous voice in his portrayal of Rex, another basketball superstar, who blames himself for his mother's death. After a chance meeting, they fall instantly in love and are continually tested by circumstances and their penchants for keeping secrets. Abbott-Pratt and Butler both employ casual cadences, making it seem like their characters are sharing life updates with good friends. Some sequences are particularly emotional, and both narrators perform these scenes with heartbreaking sincerity. S.P. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
