Frankie Corzo smoothly navigates accent subtleties in her narration of this sweet story about life pivots. When devastating events leave Lila reeling after high school graduation, her parents have her stay with family in England for the summer. Lila is comforted when she infuses Miami flavors from home into her cousin's kitchen. She embraces friendships with Orion, a neighboring tea shop clerk, and his friends. But what happens to these connections once it's time for Lila to go home? Corzo's Spanish accent is flatter when she portrays Venezuelan family members living in England. A formal British accent enhances Orion's charm and showcases cultural differences. Corzo's voice fades out while delivering unfinished sentences as Lila and Orion determine their relationship status, emphasizing the difficulty of the situation.
