  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 May #1
    Twins Fern and Rose couldn't be less alike, physically or mentally, but they have a bond formed from years of emotional abuse by their mother and by a dark secret. Fern, a brilliant librarian, has sensory processing issues and is on the autism spectrum. Although she can't seem to fix the printer, she's able to match patrons with just the right book and deftly handle library disturbances. (Anyone who has worked at a library desk will sympathize with the disturbances.) Rose is socially more adept, but she has inner wounds. The narration alternates between Rose's diary and Fern's actions. Reader Kreinik differentiates the sisters by giving Fern a crisp, detached tone (fitting with her character) and making Rose sound more emotional. Their Australian accents are charming. Fern's love interest is a computer programmer from the U.S. living in his van, and Kreinik makes him sound believably American. Other supporting characters are voiced distinctly. Suspense builds as listeners search for the truth beneath the varying stories and plot twists. Fans of unreliable narrators will love this! Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
