Taylor Meskimen voices dual narrators Izzy and Wren in this slice-of-life audiobook. Both 12-year-old girls are at inflection points: Artsy, earnest Izzy is suddenly friendless now that her bestie hangs out with the cool mean girls, while driven figure skater Wren is scared for her chronically ill sister and frustrated that her sister's treatment has upended her family's life. When the girls first meet, it's not exactly instant friendship, but eventually they're able to offer each other the support they sorely need. Meskimen leans into the light, childlike timbre of her voice, bringing out the characters' painful vulnerabilities as well as the tender excitement of their burgeoning friendship. Though slight on plot, this audiobook is a short and sweet listening experience. R.A.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
