Some authors excel at narrating their own work. Jenny Downham can be counted among them. Her latest teen novel features Lexi, a 15-year-old whose anger issues are coming to a head as she struggles for perfection, hoping to be accepted by her mother's demanding fiancé. In this haunting story, Lexi's frustrations with her shortcomings are realistically portrayed, both by the words on the page and by Downham's performance. Significant differences between characters' voices help draw the listener into Lexi's world. Downham's remarkable skills, both as author and as narrator, ensure that listeners will empathize with Lexi's turmoil. Beautifully performed, this audiobook is certain to evoke deep emotions.
