The daily discomforts, struggles, and successes of Annika Rose, a young woman on the autism spectrum, are masterfully conveyed in Kathleen McInerney's carefully paced narration. She brings in touches of hopefulness, naïveté and determination. Annika meets Jonathan at a college chess club meeting, and the two begin dating. The story moves back and forth between the two first-person perspectives. Narrator Fred Berman perfectly complements Jonathan's caring nature as well as his growing realization that Annika will not intuitively understand his emotional needs. The audiobook is so much more than a young adult romance. The listener will cheer as Annika learns to better navigate the world with the help of her supportive best friend, Janice, and her family.
