Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

The first installment in a trilogy, this audiobook is about language first and foremost. It begins with the story of Hiruko--a climate refugee from the "land of sushi." Japan no longer exists, but Hiruko is searching for someone who can speak her language. Along her journey, she collects new friends and fellow travelers. Cindy Kay narrates the backstories of Hiruko's six new friends, each in the first person. None has a distinctive accent as each speaks, or is studying, at least two or more languages. Kay varies the inflections slightly and uses subtle differences in pace, but the narrative is a little hard to follow at times. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
