Narrator Alex McKenna's husky voice is the perfect match for this coming-of-age story about a 22-year-old Midwestern woman who moves to New York City to begin her adult life. Tess doesn't know what she wants, but she's willing to embrace every opportunity with gusto, including her grueling job as a bus person in a famous Manhattan restaurant. McKenna's performance is infused with a magical mix of youth and naïveté, tempered by a toughness earned after a year in the city. Listeners will practically taste the briny oysters, feel the bubbles of champagne, and sense the pop of caviar between their teeth. McKenna projects a full range of nuanced emotions, augmenting the intimacy of Tess's journey to self-discovery and her survival in the often brutal restaurant world. C.B.L.
