Author and narrator Asha Bromfield offers an engrossing performance of this coming-of-age audiobook. Bromfield's experience as an actress and her ease with Jamaican Patois will draw listeners into a story that has multiple levels of emotional intensity. Tilla, who is desperate for her father's affection despite his absence from her life, spends the summer in Jamaica with him. But island life isn't what she imagined. The impending hurricane season, along with the rampant sexism, colorism, and abuse she witnesses, leaves her reeling from culture shock and the constant feeling of being an outsider. An interview at the end between Bromfield and author Tiffany D. Jackson explores Bromfield's inspiration and writing process. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
