Narrator Phoebe Strole brings listeners into the mind of Mim Malone, who is on a solo cross-country expedition to find her mother. Through first-person narration and letters, Strole highlights Mim’s quest to understand her conflicting emotions, her parents’ divorce, the complexities of mental illness, and her struggle to trust others. Strole’s earnest voice has the sound of youth with a glimpse of wisdom beyond Mim’s years. Her characterization of Mim is at once bright and somber, and her wide range of delivery also brings humor and heart to the outlandish array of people Mim encounters. The story is not without its dark moments, and Strole handles heartbreaking issues by imbuing her character portrayals and storytelling with respect and precisely rendered details.
