Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Karen Chilton

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

By the time Breezy was 14, she had two baby girls and had just discovered crack cocaine. Karen Chilton's superb narration enhances Brenda Myers-Powell's memoir. Her parents died, her neighborhood was tough, and her grandmother loved her but couldn't always protect her. It wasn't a sad life, and Chilton orchestrates the laugh-out-loud moments like a seasoned conductor. For example, when Breezy was shot in the toe through a brand-new pair of shoes, she refused to take them off until she got to the hospital. This is a full-bodied performance, complete with salty language and harrowing situations, but listeners will love Chilton's portrayal of Breezy's determination to find her place in the world. E.E.S.
