Karen White reads CHERRY, which continues the memoir that began with THE LIAR’S CLUB. This book is a reminder that the so-called good old high school years can be a time of great turmoil and temptation. White adopts an assertive, no-nonsense persona that still shows signs of vulnerability and bravado. She is convincing as a teenager confronting hard questions and not always showing the best judgment in making choices. White’s decision not to take on an exaggerated Texan accent adds to the universality of the characters and the experience. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
