Emily Lawrence portrays Barrett Bloom, who has just arrived at college for her freshman year. Listeners immediately observe that Barrett uses sarcasm to disguise hurt as wit. When she discovers that she's rooming with a high school nemesis, it becomes clear that her hoped for reinvention at college isn't possible. It's as if she's locked in a time loop. In fact--she is! Tension ratchets up when Barrett learns she has a time-traveling companion named Miles Kasher-Okamoto. Lawrence dramatizes their unfriendly meeting and the clash between Miles's ultra-serious nerdiness and Barrett's more playful side. Gradually, believably, Lawrence recounts the pair's growing mutual trust and, finally, a slow-burning attraction that, ironically, may be threatened by being released from their time prison. Rom-com and sci-fi tropes find new definition and fun. S.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
