I really wanted to like this, but it primarily focuses on a young girl's obstinate rejection of familial love due to feelings of abandonment, her wishy-washy sense of ambition and purpose, and on her need to have a boyfriend.
I'm sure these issues will resolve at some point, but I'm more than halfway through and have lost patience with it.
Performance is decent, if there are a few intentional quirks that can either be a benefit to the narration or an annoyance, depending on how you're enjoying the story. An echo reverb for effect and a strange speech impediment for Martians were the latter for me, but probably a big element of that is my disappointment in the story and character development.

Here is a heartfelt coming-of-age story about a teenage girl navigating relationships; complicated would-be boyfriends, her payroll father, and her distant "mother" (who she happens to be a clone of). It's a wonderful journey of finding both independence and loyalty among a pretty thrilling conspiracy. Kelly's technologies (including sharing-brain-feeds, deep space travel, print-anything-on-demand) were fully realized, believable, and never got in the way of the story. Not to mention the ending... agh! Highly recommended.

like many audible titles there's not much to go on with the sample track it only took about 5 minutes into the story to realise it's actually a teen girls coming of age story ( set in space ) will all the Romance Love Lost and relationship building one might expect. As a 27 year old male this isn't exactly my forte with that said I still found myself pulled into this world the author has wrote a very imaginative but well constructed story with characters you want to route for. the narration was performed beautifully you can hear she put a lot of herself into reading this story overall it's definitely worth the buy
