Kate Burton does a masterful job with mother-daughter dynamics in Lamott's story of a California family that includes Elizabeth and her 13-year-old daughter, Rosie. She captures the alternating dependency and rebellion of adolescence with a sure touch. She gives Rosie a vivid blend of little girl's voice and teenager's sulkiness. Lamott fills the novel with threads of family relationships interwoven and offered in honest detail. Burton offers a fine rendition, although the abridgment leaves some gaps that the full text would probably resolve. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 97]
