Anika Noni Rose's narration is pitch-perfect in this Marvel Comics middle grade novel about the Black Panther's genius little sister, Shuri. This audiobook is filled with fictional names, places, and gizmos that can seem daunting. Rose uses this fictional vocabulary so well that listeners will have no problem believing that it is all real. While Rose does a stellar job with the vast array of accents, she especially shines when the 13-year-old heroine and her best friend talk and bicker. At no point do listeners begin to confuse the two characters even when they are both getting overly emotional or heated, as teenagers tend to do. SHURI would be a fast and fun listen for entire families of comics fans. A.R.F. 2021 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
