Three narrators deliver the points of view of three young men dealing with HIV in Rio de Janeiro. Ian, portrayed by Luis Selgas, is reeling from a new diagnosis. Henrique, portrayed by Christian Barillas, has been living with HIV. Victor, portrayed by Anthony Lee Medina, connects romantically with Henrique, but when he finds out about Henrique's HIV+ status, he must confront his own fears and prejudices. All three narrators convey the book's hopeful tone and deliver authentic-sounding Brazilian Portuguese pronunciations for names of people and places, grounding listeners in the Rio locale. As Ian, Henrique, and Victor's lives become intertwined, secondary characters, especially Eric, Henrique's boisterous drag queen roommate, add to the sense of community. Listen to this compassionate audiobook, beautifully written and translated, to widen your perspective. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
