SUGAR AND SPICE Opposites Attract

by | Read by Finty Williams

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Finty Williams's sensitive narration perfectly captures young Ruth's fears as she copes with family responsibilities, rejection from old friends, and pressure to join a gang at her school. A new student unexpectedly stands up for Ruth, and the two outcasts form an unlikely friendship. Williams captures Ruth's naïveté and impressionable spirit and nicely contrasts them with Shayanne's upper-class bravado. Williams keeps the listener engaged and rooting for Ruth as she finds the courage to deal with surprising revelations and pressures. Williams's portrayal of Ruth's mother shows a keen understanding and sensitivity. This story will resonate with teenagers as Williams's performance is wonderfully evocative of the emotional roller coaster of adolescence.
