Narrator Katie Shore's youthful voice perfectly portrays Elvis Babbitt, a knowledgeable 12-year-old who is dealing with her mother's death, her troublesome sister, and her father's less-than-perfect parenting. In portraying Elvis, Shore creates a tone of innocence and authenticity. She highlights Elvis's humor and honesty by using emphasis and a clear timbre. When expressing Elvis's feelings about her mother's death, Shore's words are soft-spoken and childlike. Elvis is curious to find out more about her mother's death while at the same time helping her older sister cope with her grief and dangerous sleepwalking. This is a story about family, overcoming loss, and keeping your sense of humor through it all. D.Z. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2017]
