Eighth-grader Delia Douglas is a champion double-dutch jumper. She has great friends and gets good enough grades. She has a secret though; she can’t read, and she can’t hide it much longer as the proficiency tests loom ahead. She has to pass the tests to stay on the double-dutch team and become a freshman. What will she do? Two other suspenseful storylines keep this novel moving. Patricia R. Floyd is the perfect narrator for this cast of middle school students. She can change her voice enough to make the girls, boys, and adults all sound different. The result is charming and effective. J.M.P. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
