It's great fun listening to narrator Pete Simonelli illuminate the gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood featured in this engaging audiobook by the author of the GOSSIP GIRL series. With lively rhythms he shines a spotlight on the interconnected lives of four affluent families who reside there. The animated and witty characterizations of Roy, a successful novelist; Stuart, a formerly famous musician; Tupper, an odd industrial designer; and Peaches, a bubbly school nurse, along with their spouses and children, will entertain listeners. Simonelli shows considerable range in depicting each character's emotions and is especially adept at portraying the concerns of adolescents. The novel is an amusing slice of contemporary urban life.
