Sixteen-year-old Gideon Rayburn has no idea there's a girl visiting his mind. But the female intruder shares with the listener her view of every impression and struggle in Gideon's adolescent psyche. Cassandra Campbell's youthful voice suits her narration. Campell walks the fine line between Gideon's thoughts and the intruder's impressions of Gideon's thoughts, never blurring the two. We know instantly when the narrator's interjections voice Gid's surprise or her own, and we empathize with her reluctance to share certain moments with him, or with us. Campbell gives the story the light touch it deserves, while interpreting the characters exactly as a teen boy might see them. It's a performance even adults will appreciate.
