Quirky Keiko Furukura comes to awkward life in Nancy Wu's hilarious narration. From yanking down her teacher's shorts in elementary school to working as a store clerk in her middle years, you never know what nonconformist thing Keiko will do next. Wu maximizes the comedy of these interactions through an energetic delivery that keeps listeners engaged from the first chapter. Is it Asperger's or willfulness that keep Keiko out of step with the world around her? Wu has us laughing out loud, especially at Keiko's unexpected forays into love. This is a rollicking story about a girl who doesn't quite fit in (and desperately tries not to embarrass her parents) paired with a narrator who can maximize the characters' discomfort for our humor.
