Narrator Andi Arndt's understated performance of this slow-burn suspense belies the unexpected turns of the narrative. Since she gave birth on the floor of a hotel bathroom as a teenager, Amber Glass has struggled to escape being "Prom Mom." When chance brings her back to Baltimore and into the orbit of Joe, her baby's father, and his high-strung wife, Meredith, the life Amber has fought for starts spinning out of control. Arndt deftly juggles the shifting point of view as it moves among the main characters, leaving no doubt as to who is speaking. She uses intonation and emphasis to build personality for each of these flawed people while subtly ramping up the tension as they converge in a moment of crisis.
