Narrator Phoebe Strole illuminates the depth of a girl’s grief in her performance of this story about a transformative summer. Twelve-year-old Cedar is honest about her ongoing sadness a year after her father and brother died in a car accident. Strole highlights the combination of cynicism and humor Cedar uses to earn approval and as a defense mechanism. As she leaves her family’s new summer home, her friend, Leo, helps her get a job at a local Shakespeare festival. Strole hits the right notes as Cedar slowly softens—opening herself to kindness and delving with almost breathless wonder into the mystery of an actress’s death years before.
