Fiona Hardingham exercises great range in her heartfelt and hilarious narration. At 26, Effie is taking her parents' divorce hard; she's estranged from her father and fighting with Krista, his girlfriend. Krista invites Effie to a house "cooling" party at the same time that Effie realizes she's left something important in her childhood home. She sets out on a mission to retrieve it unseen. Using old hiding spots to evade party guests, Effie gets a new perspective on friends and family. Can rifts be mended? Hardingham's delivery of the caring tones between sisters are contrasted with the digs between Effie and Krista. Hardingham incorporates sotto voce whispers as Effie enlists help from a few trusted people--to comedic effect. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
