Narrator Vikas Adam gives a powerfully affecting performance of this literary audiobook. Twenty years ago, Ashok and Priya Shah emigrated from India to the U.S. They've worked hard to build a life in the wealthy Pacific Hills for their family of five, including two teen daughters and a 12-year-old neurodivergent son named Ajay, who is tall and looks much older. They find themselves in crisis when Ajay is arrested, suspected of being a terrorist. Adam grips listeners with his versatile and emotive characterizations. He deftly switches between older and younger generations, genders, and ethnicities and uses a variety of authentic-sounding Indian accents. A thought-provoking listening experience explores immigration, classism, and racism. V.T.M. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
