Mirai Booth-Ong's narration beautifully sets the scene of a haunting Malaysian folktale rewritten as a modern-day ghost story. When her grandmother dies, young Suraya receives an unusual secret inheritance--a pelesit she names Pink. A frequently malevolent ghost, Pink becomes the lonely child's first friend. Though the story is written for a middle-grade audience, Booth-Ong's enticing performance draws listeners of all ages deep into Suraya's world. As Suraya grows from a preschooler into her early teens, Booth-Ong's character voice also matures, adding an additional note of verisimilitude. Using her undeniable talent, Booth-Ong convincingly conveys other characters of different ages and origins, as well. A wonderful production sure to entertain.
