Professional reviews

"Julie Dretzin assumes the persona of lonely, picked-on Berdette Weaver in this charming, funny coming-of-age story. She gives voice to a plucky "Bird," who, in spite of the teasing of her classmates, faces life with the confidence to make her dreams come true. Dretzin brings the Southern atmosphere to life, using intonation rather than an accent as she gives each character a unique voice. As Bird's confidante and mentor, Miss Delphine is particularly well drawn, with the honeyed tones you expect from a Southern lady. Harlem, the new student Bird decides to befriend, also comes alive and is instrumental in bringing fame and glory to Freedom, Georgia. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
