Part coming-of-age romantic comedy and part sci-fi mystery, the latest from McQuiston (Red, White & Royal Blue) is a modern take on falling in love. Young August has just arrived in Brooklyn, welcomed with open arms by an eclectic cast of roommates, neighbors, and coworkers, when she finds herself digging a mysterious, dynamic punk girl on the Q train. Only one problem stands in the way of this budding romance: Jane, her train crush, is stuck in time, riding the subway indefinitely without any knowledge of where she came from or how to break her strange quantum leap. Natalie Naudus’s narration delivers the humor, joy, and earnestness of August’s internal monologue as she falls in love. In addition, she does a wonderful job delivering unique performances for the rest of the entourage that help carry this mysterious love story to its conclusion.
VERDICT This sweet yet passionate love story with a fresh twist of time-traveling mystery is well worth a listen.
