Narrator Sisi Johnson masterfully distinguishes between the voices of sisters Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern and gives a unique voice to each member of their extended family in Alabama, where Pa has sent the girls for their summer vacation. It could be confusing for the listener to identify so many different voices, but Johnson switches seamlessly between four generations, modifying her voice slightly for each family member. The sisters, who are "Brooklyn girls," sound very different from their cousin who was raised in Alabama, and he sounds very different from his great-aunt who was raised in the same place. In particular, fans of the first two books will continue to enjoy the sassiness and warmth in the voice of Delphine, from whose point of view the story is told.
