Young Adult Ages 12+ • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Frankie Corzo delivers a coming-of-age story focusing on relationships and racism. Ri lives with her grandmother in a household that forbids talking about their Mexican heritage. When she finds a letter written in Spanish from her estranged mother, she secretly takes a Spanish class and connects with new Hispanic and Latino friends, which causes a rift with her childhood friend, Brittany. Tension increases when Ri finally meets her mother behind her grandmother's back. Corzo's performance primarily focuses on the strain in Ri's relationships whenever secrets are revealed, opportunities for Corzo to depict complex emotions and deliver authentic drama. The story ranges from mundane scenes of high school life to intense moments of self-discovery, and Corzo's narration makes Ri an approachable heroine.
