Greta Jung’s arresting narration elevates this suspenseful debut novel about an undocumented Korean immigrant who is hoping to fulfill the American dream. Margot and her mother, Mina, who doesn’t speak English, have always had a strained relationship. When Margot finds that her mother has died under suspicious circumstances, she launches an investigation in hopes of finding out what happened. Voicing Mina’s and Margot’s perspectives, Jung capably does double duty by employing a singsong intonation. In particular, she effectively projects the confidence of the young, independent Margot. Although Jung provides little vocal differentiation, her accents are on point, especially as Mina tries to speak Spanish. This heartrending audiobook will linger in listeners’ minds long after they finish it. A.C. 2021 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
