The incomparable Robin Miles, with her soothing style, draws the listener into a story about finding friendship despite one's fears. The work is told from multiple points of view. When Shamiso's father, an investigative journalist, unexpectedly dies, her life drastically changes. Uprooted from her home in the United Kingdom, the teen returns to her homeland of Zimbabwe with her mother. Shamiso and fellow classmate Tanyaradzwa, both harboring deep secrets, must allow themselves to accept their growing friendship. Miles performs the story in a voice that is both lyrical and expressive. Her gentle voice invites one into the lives of Shamiso, Tanyaradzwa, and others within their circle. Miles's performance establishes both the tone and the setting of this poignant audiobook. This is a beautiful treat for the listener's ears. A.L.S.M.
