In this audiobook, Olivia, a privileged teenager, is suffering from an assortment of issues, including depression, anxiety, and bulimia. Her problems are exacerbated by her father's campaign for governor, navigating an elite L.A. high school, and her desire to be an artist. Narrator Caitlin Kelly's portrayal of the teen frequently leaves the listener feeling unsympathetic towards her because she often sounds petulant and whiny. Moreover, characters' voices are not consistent or significantly differentiated, sometimes causing the listener to wonder who is speaking in a conversation. Though Kelly gives an excellent performance when Olivia is feeling especially anxious, overall she fails to bring the listener into the world Olivia feels at odds with.
