“Shhh, Annabel, it’s just me.” These words, whispered in the dark at a party, haunt Annabel. As the youngest, she has always been a quiet observer. Allowing her older sisters’ their complicated lives and keeping peace with her controlling friends take precedence over her own needs. Now as aspects of her life are falling apart, Annabel meets Owen, who values honesty above all else and teaches her to find her voice. It is the voice of narrator Jennifer Ikeda that haunts listeners when she whispers as the would-be rapist, when she displays righteous indignation as Owen, when she confesses a sister’s eating disorder, and, especially, when she conveys the emotional confusion Annabel feels about all of these relationships. Just listen to this remarkable production. M.M.O. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
