Like the characters that inspired them, the four March sisters in this remix are coming of age against the backdrop of the American Civil War. This audiobook is performed well for its young adult audience. Adenrele Ojo offers a theatrical delivery that will engage young listeners, and no prior knowledge of the Alcott original is needed to enjoy these characters and their experiences. Sometimes Ojo's vocal renditions are too precious--young Amy is easily distinguished from the group thanks to her strident babyish tone--and Ojo's sentences consistently end with a distracting plaintive ring in her voice. However, once immersed in the thought-provoking perspective of young people living in post-Emancipation America, young listeners will have much to think about and appreciate.
