Part of the high-interest series Secrets, this audiobook includes support for reluctant readers through narrator Kelly Pruner's clear diction, easy pacing, and decidedly conversational tone. In Canada, 1964, 16-year-old Malou lives in an orphanage. When a fire destroys it, she receives a single clue about her parentage and sets off on her own. The clue brings her to a town with an unusually large number of children of color--a town full of secrets. Mature topics are introduced but handled age-appropriately. Besides delivering the occasional Canadian "eh?", Pruner doesn't attempt to effect Canadian, First Nation, or African-American accents or manners of speech. Listeners will feel Malou could be any contemporary friend. L.T. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2016]
