Becca Q. Co expressively narrates this romantic comedy, which takes place in Manila and features endearing Chinese Filipino characters. As Chloe is about to leave home to study animation in the U.S., her Auntie Queenie enthusiastically arranges a debut for her eighteenth birthday. Chloe's stern yet loving father helps set Chloe up on three arranged dates in the hope that she'll fall in love and stay home for college. Co expertly handles the Tagalog and Hokkien words in the story. Changes in pitch and volume illustrate Chloe's mixed feelings of shock and delight at Queenie's schemes. The passion and tension between Chloe and her love interest are palpable, as is his deadpan humor. This delightful listening experience will have listeners cheering for Chloe and her support system.
