Description

The touching story of one girl's journey to find herself, In Search of Mockingbird is Loretta Ellsworth's heartfelt novel. It's 1986, and 15-year-old Erin is none too pleased by her widowed father's announcement that he's getting married. When she discovers her late mother's diary, she learns that she wanted to be a writer just like Erin does. So she runs away from home on a Greyhound bus, determined to track down Harper Lee-the author of both her and her mother's favorite book. What unfolds is a poignant quest of self-discovery and the making of a strong young woman.

Professional reviews

"Loretta Ellsworth's coming-of-age story pays homage to Harper Lee's TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. For her sixteenth birthday Erin's widowed father gives her a diary that belonged to her mother and then announces his plans to marry his girlfriend. In response, Erin hops a bus heading for Monroeville, Alabama, for the purpose of meeting Harper Lee. The narrative of the road trip alternates with entries from the diary, through which Erin connects with the mother she never knew. Though her voice lacks emotionality and sounds much younger than that of a 16-year-old, Jessica Almasy's delivery is clear and precise. This work may encourage young listeners to read Lee's classic when they're older. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
