The narrators give individual strength to three characters who are all lost on their life paths. The narrators’ intense deliveries project the characters’ shared sense of isolation and the bonding that occurs after a freak accident. Famed singer Freya, portrayed by Nicole Lewis, loses her balance and falls on Nathaniel, who is portrayed by Michael Crouch. Lewis captures Freya’s mix of diva cockiness and fear that a physical problem will destroy her career. Crouch's stilted, faltering delivery depicts Nathaniel's concussed condition, along with other mental damage resulting from years with his mentally ill father. East Indian Harun, the witness to the accident, is portrayed by Sunil Malhotra, who captures his accented speech and fear of disclosing his sexuality to his Muslim family. The gripping narrative ends with a stirring song sung by Sasha Abner. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2018 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
