Narrator Vikas Adam does a solid job of switching among genders, ages, and accents in this story. In doing so, he captures a pivotal year for five very different students at an elite boarding school. "Townie" Beth's anxiety makes life difficult. Amanda wants to be known for more than her looks and family money. Bullies in Ramin's dorm remind him of escaping persecution in Iran. Sarah's ready to focus on herself after too long taking care of others. Athlete Freddy wants to create a new path for himself. A writing workshop brings the teens together, creating a support group as each works through challenges. Adam's female voices sometimes sound comical, but it's a small distraction. Author Abdi Nazemian narrates a powerful note about personal experiences that inspired the story. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
