As the voice of Mona, Ellie Moon performs appropriately. A young playwright, Mona should be an engaging character, but we don't hear much about her creative process. Rather, she struggles with family, friends, and herself throughout the novel. The simple structure of the story and the journalistic style of the prose are distracting in the audiobook format. Multiple narrators don't serve much purpose here either: The lion's share of the performance is Moon's, and the author's style leaves Moon sounding distant and flat. The other narrators sound much the same in their smaller roles. The audiobook is fine--but not particularly memorable. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
