AudioFile Earphones Award

Allyson welcomes listeners with her warm narration of a story centered around Cassie Logan, whom listeners first met as an 8-year-old in ROLL OF THUNDER, HEAR MY CRY. Now Cassie is 19, and she’s moving from Mississippi north, and then to California, discovering that prejudice and racism exist even all the way across the country. Johnson makes Cassie’s emotions clear as she grieves major losses, stands up to injustices, and balances maintaining her family’s love and respect with the possibility of an interracial marriage. The drama of the plot and the depth of the characterizations ensure that this audiobook is unforgettable.
