In the mid-1990s, 16-year-old Maggie, from Chicago, finds herself in the midst of grunge rock, first love, and burgeoning independence. When Maggie's mother marries her Irish boyfriend, the family moves to Ireland. Narrator Erin Moon excels at giving heart to Maggie's journey and growth, especially as the teen takes off for Rome to hear the band Nirvana, a favorite of her beloved Uncle Kevin back home. Moon's expertise at a number of Irish brogues is a treat to hear, and she deftly illuminates the subtle cultural differences that Maggie must adjust to. The audiobook also stands out as Moon sings the songs of various characters, giving them depth and emotion through the music. This blast from the past is perfect for teens and adults. S.B.T.
