THE PLUS ONE EARNS EARPHONES AWARD
"A touching story and magical performance make for a gratifying listen."
From Penguin Random House Audio comes Sarah Archer's THE PLUS ONE.
Meet Kelly. Twenty-nine, valedictorian, and a brilliant robotics engineer to boot. While her professional life is on the rise, her personal life is struggling to get off the ground.With her sister's wedding looming and her attempts to find a date becoming increasingly cringe-worthy, Kelly does the only logical thing: she builds her own boyfriend, if only to get her mom off her back about being perpetually single.
"Fortgang brings out the humor in Kelly's frazzled relationship with her micromanaging, relationship-focused mother--but also the tenderness, as Kelly discovers another side of the woman who loves her. Perfect modulation for Ethan's sensitive yet robot-like voice effectively captures the paradoxes of his compassion and insight as he teaches Kelly about love. A touching story and magical performance make for a gratifying listen." M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
