Arinze Kene and Sheila Atim excel at narrating this cautionary tale--disguised as a #MeToo novel. Michael, portrayed by Kene, and Ola, portrayed by Atim, are a young, Black power couple who live in London. While they are planning their wedding, Michael's name appears on a list of abusers and rapists that quickly spreads all over social media. Kene and Atim's dramatic styles create a suspenseful mood as they impart the disbelief and despair of both Michael and Ola as each tries to cope with what's happened. Both quickly learn that an accusation equals guilt in the self-perpetuating frenzy that is social media. The morality lesson is perhaps a bit heavy-handed--but perhaps not. A gripping story, powerfully told. D.G.L. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
