Narrator Richa Moorjani's heartfelt voice elegantly balances teen antics like crushing on someone and hanging out with friends and the serious complications of living in a racist society. In this current coming-of-age story, Zara and her family--who've been waiting for years for their green cards to be approved--struggle with the repercussions of her peers' racist actions. Although listeners might find Moorjani's tone to be a bit detached at first, her individual characters are unique and dynamic. Zara sounds confident and passionate. While her father comes across as steady, loving, and intense, her mother sounds softer, more worried. With all these unique characters, Moorjani demonstrates an engaging energy, drawing listeners into a riveting and touching story filled with rich personalities and experiences.
