Young Adult Ages 12+ • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Bahni Turpin is the perfect narrator for this coming-of-age story about love and revolution written by Nigerian author Akwaeke Emezi. Seventeen-year-old Bitter finally feels safe at Eucalyptus, a boarding school for artistic teenagers. Her friends spend their free time protesting injustice, but Bitter just wants to make art. When she calls a terrifying angel out of one of her paintings, she's finally drawn into the fight--and discovers there's more than one way to create change. Every character in this short audiobook has depth, and Turpin brings each one to life--from the old man who sells watermelons to the fiery teenage revolutionaries. Each distinct voice becomes familiar as Turpin draws listeners fully into Bitter's world. Her expert narration heightens the emotion of every scene, both the tender moments and the terrifying ones.
