Narrator iiKane displays her versatility in this creepy young adult mystery. Bronwyn and her family move from Chicago to Hillwoods, Arkansas, to be closer to her dying Dominican grandmother, Lala. Brownyn is disappointed to learn there are no pools; swimming is not allowed in this strange town with its strange rules. Chapters alternate between Bronwyn and her cousin Anais, a native of Hillwoods. Anais tries to protect Bronwyn by keeping her in the dark about the town's history, but a ghostly entity wants revenge. As iiKane portrays Lala, her voice changes to reflect advanced age and illness but also has notes of tenderness. iiKane voices the ghostly entity with a deeper voice that successfully conveys anguish and pain. Additionally, iiKane narrates brief passages in clear Spanish. A.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
