The sequel to Monroe's bestselling GOD DON'T LIKE UGLY continues the heroine’s emotional growth into her early womanhood. This is a cast of vivid characters. While some of her Southern-accented characters' voices may merge, at times making it difficult to keep them apart, overall Patricia R. Floyd masters this performance. She manages to make the listener feel at some moments like an eavesdropper and at other moments like a party to a conversation of friends. This is a painful story, but Floyd's narration compels us to stay the course. P.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
