Priya Ayyar's youthful voice delivers this punny romance, in which Ireland's best young chefs compete in the first-ever Junior Irish Baking Show. Ayyar's talent for accents conveys Shireen's parents' Bangladeshi lilt, as well as the Irish accents of judges and competitors. Shireen hopes to win the prize money and gain attention for her parents' donut shop, but she'll have to beat both her ex-girlfriend and new crush to get there. Ayyar captures myriad emotions authentically, but her unshifting tone makes it hard to differentiate characters with similar accents. Particularly delightful is her portrayal of Galvin Cramsey, a grumpy chef who is based on the real-life British chef Gordon Ramsey. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
