EVIE & MARGIE is full of the subtle humor and wry understanding that is vintage Waber. Just as in his Ira stories, Waber shares the intimate workings of the younger mind. What could be more disruptive to a friendship than trying out for the same part in a class play? Evie and Margie do just that and come to grips with their relationship and the importance of an understudy. Stina Nielsen narrates with gentle understanding of her heroines. She paces the story unobtrusively so that the girls are center stage. Their emotions--whether tentative or forceful, fearful or hopeful, despondent or elated--are foremost. At the end she brings genuine pleasure to the triumphant finale. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
