Professional reviews

"A wistful narration illuminates this drama of middle school friendship. In alternating sections, Kate and Marilyn tell how their friendship is merging into a new understanding. Jessica Almasy's soft voice works well for the extended internal musings of the two girls. Almasy conveys their hurt feelings and confusion with a defensive vocal tone. Listeners will also hear the anger between the girls in Almasy's hard-edged tones. The story would be better if the characters' voices were more distinctive. Upon occasion, it's difficult to tell which girl is speaking. While the production holds no surprises, it's buoyed up by a consistent narration. Almasy's carefully crafted atmosphere will appeal to middle school girls. C.A. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
