The energetic pacing and youthful tones of narrator Sophie Amoss introduce listeners to the three teens who form the core of Oppel's newest supernatural thriller. Anaya is allergic to almost everything and suffers from what she calls "volcanic" acne; Seth is a foster kid with strange scars running down his arms; and Petra is allergic to water. When a sudden heavy rain results in the growth of strangely menacing plants, the teens' infirmities disappear, but something far more sinister and disturbing comes over them. Switching up her cadence and intensity, Amoss captures all the excitement and terror as the teens take on alien characteristics, something they have in common with the deadly plants they battle to defeat. Listeners will eagerly await the next installment. S.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
