Kayo Benton and Rosie Saunders only want to find homes for some unfortunate animals, but their efforts lead to danger and attempted murder. Montbertrand narrates the story without differentiating the character voices. Instead, she uses a blend of emotional intensity and reading speed to distinguish the characters and dramatize the story. The soft tones and slightly high pitch of Montbertrand's voice make it a good match for the story, as her voice reflects both the innocence and eagerness of the two young girls. Using long pauses and slow enunciation, she intensifies the scenes of suspense and danger. From the Frightmare series, the story will have girls 11 years and older asking for more.
