Narrator Natasha Soudek brings believable teenage angst to a Peter Pan retelling that combines the magic of Neverland with the consequences of real life. The story follows two siblings living in London as they try to move on with their lives after Peter returns from Neverland. Soudek smoothly shifts between the voices of the two main characters, giving Peter a low pitch and slow pace as he wrestles with the trauma in his past and bestowing Claire with a higher pitch and clipped tone as she struggles to fit in with societal norms. Soudek’s expert switches between points of view, along with her individualized character voices, allow listeners to easily differentiate the characters. Her performance is also noteworthy for its sensitive delivery of scenes involving self-harm and abuse. Both characters’ memories, thoughts, and actions are well integrated in Soudek's narration.
