This audiobook combines a memoir that translates perfectly to the spoken-word format with a flawless, memorable narration by Rachel Bavidge. Bavidge's tone and delivery capture every emotion during author Lea Ypi's journey from repression to freedom. At its core, this is a coming-of-age story of a girl growing up in Communist Albania in a time of dramatic political upheaval. Ypi, who also provides some narration, then describes life in a free country with economic and political challenges all around. Critical to the audiobook's success is Bavidge's ability to deliver Ypi's engaging dialogue flawlessly. Listeners will relish every moment. D.J.S.
