Narrators Natalie Beran and Jackson Bliss portray queer Russian-Maori siblings Greta and Valdin in this wise, hilarious novel about a loving and chaotic New Zealand family. Beran depicts Greta, a 20-something PhD student who is navigating various relationship messes, in a perky, wry tone that is dripping with millennial angst. Bliss narrates Valdin's sections with a mix of earnestness and detachment. A year after being dumped by his boyfriend, he's just starting to get his life back on track--or, at least, he thinks so. Eilidh Beaton, Nico Evers-Swindell, and Gary Furlong make cameo appearances as various family members and significant others. The narrators' varied New Zealand accents and ease with snappy dialogue make every moment of this joyful audiobook a pleasure. L.S. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2024]
