This debut novel has been getting a lot of press, and Ariel Blake's narration of the audiobook could well add to the buzz. There is a universal appeal to Blake's performance as Edie, a protagonist who may be her own worst antagonist. Blake's delivery has an immensely human, relatable quality that makes the listener want the best for Edie as she struggles to make her way in the world. When Edie embarks on an illicit affair--the latest in a lengthy chain of inappropriate liaisons-- the listener follows along, uneasy the whole time as Blake carries us through Edie's naïve choices, bad luck, and cold revelations. The plot has uneven moments, but Blake's agility keeps the pace and appeal well balanced. Her skill makes this an engrossing listen. L.B.F.
