The search for JJ is a multilayered story, told with dexterity by Shirley Barthelmie. JJ (Jennifer Jones) is a teen pursued by the London tabloids, as well as by her own demons, since she was convicted at the age of 10 of killing her best friend. Released from prison and working to establish a new life, she is both a normal teenager with a boyfriend and plans for college and a victim of her past. Cassidy travels from present to past with alacrity as the events that led to the murder are revealed in recollected scenes interspersed amid JJ's preoccupations with work and romance. Suspense is heightened by background music and Barthelmie's matter-of-fact recounting. D.P.D. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
