Narrator Natalie Naudus brings a quiet intensity to this genre-crossing audiobook featuring August, a prickly loner who tries to lose herself in New York City but instead finds purpose, community, and unconventional romance. The latter involves kindhearted, butch Jane, who overrides August's emotional barriers while facing a more serious hitch: Jane's from the 1970s, trapped on the Q train in a time slip. It's a complicated setup, but Naudus's smooth pacing keeps listeners on board, as do her well-timed snark and tender, unabashed love scenes. Character voices range from broad to subtle, in keeping with the story's colorful cast and sci-fi twists. Collectively, these elements cohere into an immersive and utterly beguiling performance, the perfect fit for a tale of queer joy, first love, and self-discovery. R.A.H.
