This story of two childhood BFFs who reconnect after freshman year at different colleges by spending four weeks traveling in Europe is told mostly through Sydney's thoughts and feelings. Saskia Maarleveld gives voice to Syd, who is trying to balance her excitement about the trip with best friend Leela with her worry about leaving her agoraphobic mother in the care of her younger sister. Also concerning her are her mounting frustration with Leela's selfishness and a budding romance that brings its own complications. Maarleveld's dialogue has the tone and pace of contemporary teenage girls', although her singsong intonation quickly becomes tiresome. While the style of this audiobook seems aimed at young teens, the story's themes are more appropriate to late teens. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2017]
