Narrator Caitlin Kelly displays an impressive range of emotions in this audiobook about Hayley, a former child actress and current mother who answers to her own parents due to a conservatorship. Listeners will notice parallels with real-life pop star Britney Spears's fight for personal freedom. The story unfolds in flashbacks as Hayley tells her daughters about her path to fame and her struggles with powerful predatory people. Narrator Jacob Patalive voices tabloid clips in a steady knowing tone that belies the fact that they're fake. Kelly delivers a chipper, high-pitched "I can do that" as young Hayley agrees to a casting director's requests. A Valley Girl accent with a lot of "likes" and "you knows" is used for Hayley's young peers. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
