あらすじ・解説

An intimate true story about the complexities of female friendship, the mysteries of faith and desire, and the way two girls can grow up and apart, by the award-winning author of Halsey Street.

When Naima Coster met Lila, they were girls of color in a predominantly white private school in Manhattan. As adolescents they found each other and needed each other. As each comes of age, and new bonds pull them apart, the friendship splinters. What happens when Naima and Lila turn to one another again - this time as women? And what will it take to recapture the connection that once meant the world to them?

Naima Coster’s Lila is part of The One, a collection of seven singularly true love stories of friendship, companionship, marriage, and moving on. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single sitting, with or without company.

Not entertaining at all

The audio was drab,the storyline boring. This was wasted energy for me. There was no meat and potatoes.

I wanted to enjoy this

The summary doesn’t prepare you because I would’ve avoided this had I known it would take the turn it did.
The narrator is way too monotone. Snooze I listened and when it hit about midway w the two girls in the bathroom I said nope, can’t do this.

Monotone … Coffee is needed immediately

The story is ok…… the narrator was so monotone and terrible though that I couldn’t even focus, i kept zoning out. They should have just let someone else read it.

Wooden Read

it's a short audio book, yet I read it in two sittings. Mainly because after getting to the halfway mark I didn't really care for the characters. Perhaps with a different reader it could have been more compelling. I was surprised it's was the author. it felt to me that the reader didn't know the words and read them robotically to get through the book.
I had actually thought I'd deleted this book after the halfway point, but apparently not. Having time for 22 minutes to listen, I did and finally understood the premise. It is a coming of age book for the narrator's character.
Mmmh.

Lila: the one

The story was great until the end. The end was confusing and didn't tie up the story or even left you wanting for more.

Short story

It’s been a while since I’ve listened to a short story. It captured so much about the characters.

Moving story, thought provoking

There's a good balance of instrospection and narrative, but it could use better organization of ideas. It sounded a little disperse.

Loved this

This story moved me....it’s so relatable to the friendship of girls that are so interwoven until they are not. I experienced this in my own life when I was young.
