Zoe has an unconventional pen pal-- Mr. Stuart Harris, a death row inmate and convicted murderer. But then, Zoe has an unconventional story to tell. A story about how she fell for two brothers, betrayed one, and killed the other. Hidden away in her shed in the middle of the night with a sandwich in one hand and a pen in the other, Zoe gives a voice to her heart and her fears after months of silence. Mr. Harris may never respond to Zoe's letters, but at least somebody will know her story-- somebody who knows what it's like to kill a person you love. Only through her confession can Zoe hope to atone for her mistakes and work to put her life back together again.

"A British teen sends a series of letters to a death row inmate in Texas. Zoe (not her real name since sheÕs confessing her part in the death of a boy) tells the story of her family, friends, romance, and death. Julie Maisey delivers the salutation of each letter with a slow, stilted narration, as if she were reading as Zoe writes it out. The rest of the letters she reads fluidly and evenly. Her British accent and vocal expression are perfect for the funny and introspective Zoe. While the mystery builds as Zoe gets closer to ending her story, MaiseyÕs narration remains true to ZoeÕs voice. With this story the listener gets an inside look at the mind and emotions of a teenager who is exploring love and grief. E.N. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
