    Description

    A sharp, haunting story about identity, connection, and trust built and broken, Townie is a spellbinding listen by the critically acclaimed author of If You See Me, Don’t Say Hi.

    Townie is a brief yet dramatic glimpse at a blossoming friendship between two young women in a small college town - Amal, a transplant from LA, and Bridgette, a local 20-something who feels lost in her own life and becomes enamored with her new friend’s confidence. At first, the new relationship is intoxicating, and the two women spend every spare minute getting drunk on cheap liquor, party-hopping, and binging reality TV. But soon, a secret is revealed that shifts the dynamic, and Bridgette makes a choice she can never take back.

    Please note: This audio contains strong language and descriptions of violence that some listeners may find upsetting. Discretion is advised.

    Excellent story and narration!

    I wasn't expecting such a complete story in 38 minutes but that is definitely what was achieved. There is a little mystery developing as we get to know the two main characters and then there is an ending you can't possibly see coming. It was excellent storytelling!

    This was my first listen with this narrator but she delivered the story so well that my goal is to experience her again and often.

    Great listen

    As a young man I didn’t think I would like this story. But had 40 minutes to spare so have it a try. It was amazing and I don’t regret my decision.

    Provocative

    It's really just a short story - but well done and provocative. My partner and I listened to it on a fairly short car trip and had an interesting discussion afterward about the issues this story brought up. This was one of the best of the "Audible Originals" that I've listened to.

    A bit classist and misogynistic

    It disgusts me when women are blamed for male violence. It’s also gross that the insane reaction of the men was portrayed as somehow justified or predictable. Black men are the biggest threat to the lives of Black trans women. Nothing a cis woman says or does is responsible for that violence.

    No justice

    A really sad story about a woman who was beaten within an inch of her life. The cis woman didn't even end up feeling bad or owing up to her wrong-doing. Goes to show how hard it is to be trans in America. No justice exists for the violence against trans people, either within this book or in the real world.

    Multifaceted

    Powerful story about friendships, secrets, betrayal, jealousy, hurts and lies. Well written and well read. No spoilers in this review. Short story that will have a long impact. The cast of characters reflect the author’s knowledge of Middle Eastern people. Appreciate that the excellent narrator didn’t try to imitate their accents.

    A Lesson for Us All.

    Hurts your heart, this one. We’ve all got at least one shameful thing we’d like to undo. Best to engage brain before opening mouth.

    that's messed up!

    The narrator was great! This is not what I normally will listen to but tried it.
    Story was nice and short and right to the point but what she did was messed up! I recommend that you listen to this. I will definitely recommend this.
