Narrator Almarie Guerra tells this story of a summer filled with issues of ethnicity, class, sexism, drugs, and the everyday miseries of adolescence. Margot is trying to put the best spin on her punishment of working at one of her family's supermarkets instead of playing in the Hamptons with her private school friends. Guerra's earnest and vulnerable tone helps smooth over Margot's initial spoiled complaints. Her neutral accent for Margot contrasts with the realistic accents of her Puerto Rican parents, peppered with perfect bursts of Spanish, and her South Bronx co-workers. The false bubbly tone of the dialogue when Margot talks to her school friends shoots straight to the heart of anyone who's ever tried desperately to fit in. Listeners will find plenty of drama, heartache, and redemption in this story. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
