In this quirky novel, Nancy Wu's mellow tones ably convey the angst of growing up as one of the world's last aromateurs, a person who uses a heightened sense of smell to create love potions. Having finally convinced her mother to let her go to high school, 15-year-old Mimosa works hard to keep up with her classes, the bewildering new world of teen relationships, and the extreme care she and her mother give the plants they use in their work as love witches. Descriptions of the huge array of flora are made clear and vivid through Wu's careful articulation. Although Mim is the focus of this unusual coming-of-age story, especially her blossoming romance, there are many secondary characters. Wu keeps them straight for listeners through her varied delivery. S.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
