Narrator Cassandra Morris offers a flawless portrayal of a perceptive 12-year-old protagonist who is trying to come to terms with her mother’s illness, actions, and absence. Morris’s high pitch and unrushed narration capture the youthful innocence and contemplations of Sarah Nelson, who survived her mother’s attempt to drown her. Left to cope with an alcoholic father and the death of her twin brother, Sarah seeks comfort and guidance from TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and its protagonist, Atticus Finch. Morris’s lilting intonations highlight Sarah’s intelligence and curiosity, bringing out Sarah’s determination and optimism. Morris’s stirring performance deftly complements this enticing story, making for a moving YA listening experience. M.F.
