Jenna’s life changes irrevocably after the wreck on the bridge. The life-saving surgery, physical therapy, and struggle with painkillers are only the beginning of her recovery. Can Jenna come to terms with her mother’s death and the possibility that Jenna herself caused the wreck? Jennifer Ikeda’s startling performance is a treasure. Her voice changes in an instant to keep up with Jenna’s oscillating emotional trajectories of bitterness, fear, sadness, and guilt. Ikeda portrays Jenna’s imaginings of what others think and say about her behind her back in a cynical tone. Rarely does a narrator embody a character so well. Ikeda takes a riveting story and makes it unforgettable. J.M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
