This heartfelt performance by Ramón de Ocampo is a tribute to grandparents who unconditionally love their grandchildren. The author's abuela was a never-ending source of support when his own parents weren't there for him. De Ocampo lovingly performs extremely emotional scenes that recount well-paced yet scattered memories of Ogle's life. De Ocampo expresses the strife and youthful ignorance Ogle stumbles through as his grandmother teaches him about his Latino heritage and his mother's absence. De Ocampo skillfully dives into the deep trauma Ogle experienced yet lifts the performance with the bright, wistful narration of Rex's abuela, a patient and kind woman. This moving audiobook is bittersweet and will evoke appreciation and nostalgia for those privileged with incredible grandparents. G.M.
