Characterization is especially well done in this captivating story of Naomi, a teenager who loses her memory after a bad fall. Caitlin Greer captures the tone and timbre of a young person in the process of finding herself—and discovering that she’s not the person she thought she was. Revelations of Naomi’s life—current and past—resonate in Greer’s voice. Greer’s performance perfectly reveals the author’s latest exploration of the ethereal planes of human existence. Going beyond what is physically present, Zevin again pushes the envelope in depicting her character’s psyche. Although the dialogue is not typical teen language, and the characters are mature beyond their years, both story and narration are compelling.
