Narrators Eileen Stevens and Jesse Vilinsky tap into the current of desperation that runs throughout Rory Power's stunning debut--part thriller, part queer romance, and part horror. On a remote island, students at the Raxter School for Girls have been left to fend for themselves, grimly watching as an insidious sickness wreaks havoc on their bodies and minds, and waiting for a cure that never seems to come. Stevens and Vilinsky masterfully handle the complexities of the story, communicating the girls' determination to survive in gritty voices. Tentative steps into new romance are tenderly conveyed, while encounters with nightmarish creatures are perfectly paced and gruesome. This fast-paced, utterly compelling audio will keep listeners riveted all the way to its exhilarating ending. S.A.H.
