Narrators Alexandra Monir and James Fouhey create a high-stakes atmosphere with the pace of their delivery. In increasingly urgent tones, they recount a postapocalyptic story of 24 teens who are competing for the opportunity to colonize one of Jupiter's moons. Author Monir portrays Naomi in a surprisingly professional performance. On par with seasoned YA narrators, she adds a personal touch to her character by infusing subtle inflections of personality throughout her dialogue. Fouhey's clear, earnest tone makes his character, Leo, more relatable as the humble teen is thrust into a dog-eat-dog program whose goal is to save humanity. A technical issue with the playback quality does reduce the listening experience. Each narrator's segment plays at a noticeably different speed, requiring several manual adjustments throughout.
