In these interconnected stories, Sophie Applebaum is struggling to find her own voice, and, luckily, author Melissa Bank provides a wonderful one in her narration of this irresistible audiobook. With a sweet blend of earnestness and haplessness, Bank's performance of Sophie is perfectly suited to the character of the protagonist, unapologetically catching the essence of this entirely human character. Bank skillfully maneuvers her way through her own witty prose, mastering the art of the comic pause and the well-spun delivery. Touching, honest, and often laugh-aloud funny, this audio treasure is not to be missed. The resonant voice of Melissa Bank makes the narrator a real person the listener can't help but care about.
