Irish actor Sarah Jane Drummey performs Ciara Smyth's dialogue-rich novel using varied pacing for the trio of characters at its heart. The story is told from underachieving Aideen's perspective. She, perfectionist Meabh, and exceedingly chatty Kavi find themselves in an unexpected friendship that offers each the opportunity to grow emotionally as they make changes in distressing areas of their own lives--as well as in other students' lives. Drummey's delivery of this well-crafted story's dry wit and authentic pathos provides easy access to its nonstop high jinks, truly awful mistakes, and range of homelife situations that differ in degrees of pain. Listeners will discover that concerns about identity, classism, and wokeness are not limited to North America. F.M.R.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
