AudioFile Review: I'm Not Missing by Carrie Fountain

Narrator Rebecca Soler navigates listeners through Miranda Black's unexpected senior year. Bonded by the disappearances of their mothers at a young age, Miranda and Syd have a friendship that is as constant as the red in the dirt of Las Cruces, New Mexico. But when Syd disappears and Miranda learns the truth about the embarrassing prom fiasco known as the "the Nick Allison incident," Miranda starts to rethink their power dynamic. Soler's range allows her to flow seamlessly between the story's unfolding mystery and its romance. Soler captures the mixed emotions of the curious yet doubting half-Latina protagonist. Soler's delivery highlights the poetic aspects of this story and downplays any predictably in Miranda's search for herself and her loved ones.
