This #audiobook available on Audible completely blew me away! It was truly an 𝘐𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘓𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘌𝘹𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 and it needs to be added to everyone’s playlist asap.

The story is told by the pov of Charlie, an autistic 17yo senior, who has been accepted to MIT and is working at a local deli to save money for college.
The owner of the deli is found dead, and Charlie was caught on camera at the scene of the crime. She doesn’t know who to trust and wants to protect her friends, so she chooses to not say anything. SelectiveMutism

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic audio that brings the murder-mystery to life!
Reviewed in the United States on January 25, 2022
This was an absolutely fantastic audio thriller! If you enjoy audio that really brings you into the story, you need to check this one out!

The story is told through Charlie’s viewpoint. At 17, she has plans to head out of her small town and off to college on a scholarship. Charlie works in a local sandwich shop, and when the owner is murdered, Charlie seems to know more than she’s willing to share with the police.

Charlie is autistic, so there are some things that others do that she doesn’t quite connect with, and I really enjoyed her thoughts on people’s facial expressions and body language as she tells the story. As she relives what happened and works through the mystery, we get the chance to learn so many secrets. The story had fantastic twists and turns that really kept me guessing. There were a few twists that I thought I might have figured out, but it was really fun to watch them play out.

I want to talk about the audio a bit. I listen to a ton of audio, but this is the first one that felt like a movie at times. It was such an interesting way to bring the book to life. Not all scenes, but quite a few were played with different actors for each character and outside sounds were introduced. When they were by a roadside, there’s some car noise in the background, all those little additional details made the story feel like an immersive experience.

I would highly recommend this audio book for any readers that enjoy a murder mystery!
