Narrator Richa Moorjani is the lively voice of recent high school graduate Noreen, who is looking for new meaning in her life in New Delhi. Moorjani makes the most of a plucky main character on an exotic adventure. She creates a vivacious, sarcastic persona for the teen, who has become jaded by the death of her beloved Aunt Sonia. Moorjani evokes both funny and sad moments as Noreen simultaneously grapples with growing up and moving on. Listeners may find themselves laughing out loud at the many contrasts that are made even funnier by the deft narration. Moorjani transforms this coming-of-age story into a rich listening experience. Fans of international literature will find much to admire as Noreen does whatever it takes to get everything her young, conflicted heart desires.
