Adopted from a war-torn country, Millie struggles on many levels with her teenaged search for self. Her life in Vermont suddenly seems foreign when a new boy arrives from her native country. As the story unfolds, significant changes in her life culminate with a trip to her birth country. The meanings of friendship, family, romance, heritage, and the cruelty of war are all brought together as Millie finds her true home. Daphne Rubin-Vega's reading highlights the inflections and accents of a bilingual teenager and presents Millie's story in a straightforward style. However, Julia Alvarez's excellent writing is not fully successful in transcending to the spoken word. L.D.H. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
