In the fall of 1998, 12-year-old Easter Quilby wasn't sure it was a good idea to sneak out of her foster care home to leave with her wayward father, but she and her little sister went anyway, setting off a chain of events that had far-reaching effects. Jenna Lamia's remarkable performance makes her the star of this ensemble audiobook. Her impeccable North Carolina accent and pitch-perfect expression enliven Easter's mixed emotions, such as distrust colored by yearning and excitement dampened by misgivings. Two men follow Easter's journey, one looking to rescue the girls and one seeking revenge on the father. Erik Bergman's slow, gentle voice is a match for Brady's kindness, while Scott Sowers makes listeners shiver with his rendering of Pruitt, a sociopathic hit man. C.B.L.
