Narrator Shayna Small delivers a poignant coming-of-age performance. Skillfully voicing a wide-ranging cast of characters, her nuanced narration enlightens, inspires, and devastates listeners. Shayna presents an honest and raw portrayal of passion, agony, and the beauty of a powerful young woman. Protagonist Amore Brown spends her summer before college with her estranged father in Jersey City in the 90s. Listeners are taken on a visceral journey through the city's sounds, sensuality, and sweltering heat. Small showcases Amore's intelligence and confidence, along with fear and vulnerability, as she faces overwhelming emotional upsets. Small's depiction of supporting characters is equally brilliant, bringing an authentic and identifiable voice to each. Listeners will be emotionally invested and immersed in every scene as Small compellingly delivers desire, humor, heartbreak, and hope. M.M.W.
