Narrators Georgia King and Sandy Rustin work to ground this time-shifting horror novel, and their efforts reward close listening. Ori, Amber, and Violet are three teens whose lives intersect through ballet, bullying, and a juvenile detention center. Amber is doing time for murder. Violet and Ori are best friends and talented ballerinas. When Violet stands up to some bullies and Ori steps into the conflict, things go horribly wrong. King performs Violet with a tight, strident voice that makes listeners instantly understand how cold and tightly wound she is. Rustin's Amber sounds youthful and energetic. The strangeness of the horror story, combined with narrative jumps in time, makes this audiobook tricky to follow unless one pays close attention.
