"Robin Miles delivers an entrancing narration of the first book in Moore's new series, featuring African-American teen Yasmin Peace. Miles portrays Yasmin's struggles with puberty and with recent losses in her close-knit family, especially the recent suicide of her brother. Differentiation of all the characters is one of Miles's strong points, and she also takes care that listeners empathize with Yasmin, who feels the necessity to forsake her tomboy ways and take care of her family. Convincingly depicting Yasmin's strong relationship with God, Miles makes clear what is at the heart of this young woman's ability to meet these coming-of-age challenges. Overall, Miles's narration sounds every bit as real and intentional as the author--and listeners--could wish. J.E. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
