About This Month’s Featured Audio

Diana Abu-Jaber’s latest has been receiving acclaim months before its publication. It was the buzz of the June Book Expo America convention, Kirkus gave it a starred review, and now AudioFile has chimed in with praise for the narration. It’s the story of the Muirs:

Avis Muir is a brilliant pastry chef, Brian Muir a corporate real estate attorney. Their son, Stanley, is the proprietor of a trendy food market. Their beautiful daughter, Felice, is missing. A runaway at 13, Felice has spent five years modeling tattoos, skateboarding, clubbing, and sleeping in a squat house or on the beach. She’s about to turn 18. Soon all of the Muirs will be forced to confront their anguish, loss, and sense of betrayal. And Felice must reckon with the guilty secret that drove her away, then face her fear of losing her family and her sense of self forever.

“Narrator Tamara Marston portrays the main characters . . . with feeling and sensitivity. Her reading recognizes that the city of Miami . . . is also a character, and she infuses the descriptions of the landscape and urban setting with meaning.”

“Nuanced and deftly drawn. . . . Will [also] draw teens.”

“A meticulous, deeply moving portrayal of imperfect human beings struggling to do right.”
      —Kirkus Reviews starred review
