An Na's poetic style is brought to life by the versatile Kim Mai Guest in this story of a Korean-American family in crisis. Guest's facility with accents lets the listener hear the heavy accents of the parents in contrast to the very American speech of the children. The story is told in the first-person voice of Mina, with alternating chapters in the voice of her deaf sister, Suna. Mina's web of lies, woven to maintain her mother's idealized image of the perfect daughter/student, is beginning to unravel. As senior year approaches, Mina must find a way to weave truth from the threads of her life. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
