In a vibrant performance with well-paced comedic timing, narrator Natalie Naudus turns Jasmine Tran's attempt to save her love life, career, and donut shop into a satisfying listen. Naudus's slightly acerbic voice is well suited for Jasmine, who uses self-deprecation and sarcasm when confronting her problems. While attempting to make her family's donut shop go viral, Jasmine gets a second chance with her college crush, the seemingly perfect Alex, for whom Naudus takes on an amiable tone that matches his good-natured patience with Jasmine. Naudus gives a balanced performance; her boisterous narration becomes more reserved when portraying Jasmine's parents who, while supportive, struggle to understand their first-generation- American daughter. Naudus's standout audio performance will undoubtedly pull listeners into this contemporary coming-of-age story. J.E.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
