There can be no doubt that narrator Aimee Lilly is having fun portraying Maxine Justice, who is feisty, resilient, and a bit down on her luck. Lilly captures all of Max’s dry wit, which makes this whimsical sci-fi story even more effective. In addition to humans, Lilly has a broad cast of nonhumans to depict, including robot judges and aliens who tempt Earthlings with an offer that is too good to be true. Lilly handles both heroes and villains with nuance and lets listeners decide who falls into which category. Among the supporting “characters,” Lilly imbues an AI counselor and a cell phone with so much personality that listeners will wish they could actually meet them. J.E.M.
