In a marvelously touching performance, narrator Gabrielle de Cuir embodies the fragility, determination, and curiosity of a 14-year-old English schoolgirl. Tania is struggling to find her way in the near future of 2049, a time when the world population has been decimated by infertility and hopeful parents have taken to adopting highly specialized androids, indiscernible from humans, as their children. The book deftly weaves the coming-of-age concerns of friendship and first love with the lofty themes--the limits of technology and what it truly is to be sentient. It's a rare event when one hears an audiobook that expands one's mind and breaks one's heart at the same time. De Cuir makes every last word of this first- person story come alive with an adolescent's hopes, doubts, and dreams. B.P.
