Alexis Floyd and Jenni Barber are perfect with their emotional narration of a story that examines the complexities of friendship and race. Cinnamon, a Black career counselor, has fought hard for the life she has and feels bad for wanting more. Daisy, a white 19-year-old, is broke, alone, and hiding her pregnancy. The two become unlikely friends. Cinnamon finds an abandoned white baby and grows more attached to the newborn even while desperately searching for the mother and encountering judgments from friends and strangers. Floyd's range is superb in the Cinnamon chapters and is best exemplified when a character smooths out her naturally raucous tone to affect a polished attitude over the phone. Barber's higher pitch fits Daisy's youth and moments of anguish. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
