Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

The youthful-sounding Sarah Bierstock is an excellent choice to narrate this coming-of-age novel. Isabel is in the last semester of her senior year of college, but life seems as confusing as ever. Bierstock makes Isabel's endless ruminations and dilemmas relatable, ensuring that she is a sympathetic character. Listeners will lean in to the specifics of this young Jewish woman who is grappling with quintessential 20-something questions. She does so in the late 1990s, during the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. Bierstock creates a likable character in Isabel, and listeners will want her to find her path--even if takes an affair with a professor to eliminate the bad options. Listeners may want to be aware that this title includes depictions of sexual violence. M.R. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2023]
