Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Frankie Corzo beautifully narrates most of this audiobook as she portrays 30-year-old Monica Campo, whose world implodes when she finds herself pregnant from a rebound relationship. Corzo aptly infuses her performance with angst. Portraying Monica's mother, Mirta, Yareli Arizmendi captures a woman in ill health whose long-held secret upends her family, especially Monica. Arizmendi gives the Cuban matriarch the perfect accent and deep pitch. Corzo's youthful voice conveys the emotional journey Monica goes through as she tries to figure out how to deal with her pregnancy while coping with her mother's precarious health and delusional ramblings. Arizmendi uses cadence and tone to convey the confusion and desperation Mirta feels as she tries to communicate her secrets to her family while coping with a serious illness.
