Narrator Annie Q's youthful exuberance reflects 11-year-old Mo Gallagher's newfound passion for collecting family recipes and her hope for a new home. The death of her beloved grandmother/guardian has resulted in Mo's placement into foster care. As she grows a website and adjusts to the many changes in her life, Annie Q's delivery reflects Mo's buoyant tone and resilient spirit. Annie Q also captures Mo's periodic anger and feelings of disappointment. With her skillful accents, Annie Q provides verisimilitude to the people from many cultures who reach out to Mo with recipes. When Mo's plans go awry, Annie Q's portrayals project the comforting warmth of those who support her. Recipe downloads enhance this production for listeners who love to cook. S.W.
