Narrator Caroline Lee's attractive tangy voice, with its gentle Australian accent, draws listeners into Kim Kelly's newest novel as warmly as a welcoming host. The endearing and witty story focuses on Addy, a working-class student at the prestigious University of Sydney, who is the daughter of a taciturn German widower. It's 1985. Addy parties and studies hard, lives in an emotional yarn-tangle of flat mates and friends, and strives to stop messing things up. Lee's droll narration is softened by sympathy for Addy's confusions. Her vivid characterizations--rich English brat, nervous guy, 70-something German shopkeeper--divert and delight. When Addy finds a special frock, Lee's trailing syllables hint at magic despite her serious tone. And a special guy brings champagne bubbles into her voice. Mmm, delicious.
