Jesse Vilinsky's versatile performance brightens this dark tale of a child who is forced to grow up too fast. Failed by the adults around her, young Antoinette ("Antsy") finds a door to an ever-expansive shop filled with lost things. Escaping the watchful eye of her new stepfather, Antsy enters and quickly becomes enamored with more doors, which lead to worlds beyond. But she soon finds that escaping has a price and the shop's keepers--an old woman and a talking magpie--are holding a centuries-old secret. Vilinsky keeps pace as Antsy grows older, expertly adjusting her narration to the girl's maturation yet maintaining Antsy's essence. Listeners will be captivated by how Vilinksy balances tragedy and hope in this eighth installment of the Wayward Children series. A.A.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
