Powerful narrator Laura Jennings brings young Mississippi native Millie Reynolds to life with her emotional portrayal in this new audiobook. Being raised by an abusive father and a drug-addicted mother during the Depression, she looks to escape "into the free" and to break the cycle of abuse in her family. Jennings's believable but generic Southern accent keeps listeners focused on the story. She captures the emotional life of a teenager who is struggling to discover where she belongs amid the trauma she experiences. Listeners will find themselves wanting to hug Millie and urge her to get away from her destructive family. V.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
