TWELVE chronicles the year between Winnie Perry's twelfth and thirteenth birthdays. Not a moment is left unexamined, from the vicissitudes of friendships to the changes in a young woman's body. Winnie alienates some friends and makes others, turns often to her older sister for assurance and advice and to her younger brother for playful moments, and emerges as a more confident young lady. Narrator Jen Taylor is chatty, conspiratorial, dejected, or elated as each moment necessitates. Her voice is light and her pacing jaunty as Winnie moves from boy watching to classmate assessing to birthday planning. Listeners will be enveloped by her welcoming voice.
