Andi Arndt’s skillful narration expresses the drama that follows in the wake of teenager Carolyn Lessing, whose arrival in Alabama from New Jersey shakes up the sleepy status quo at Adams High. Arndt superbly voices the reactions of Carolyn’s peers to this attractive outsider. With a soft Southern drawl, she sketches the cast of the school, including male and female students, teachers, parents, and coaches. But the weight of the narration—and Arndt’s most artful depiction—is carried by the “we” that voices most of the story. This innovative point of view captures the group of teenaged girls who witness—and, in a way, assist in—Carolyn’s tragic downfall. Provocative and fully engaging, this is a production that will haunt listeners. J.C.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2015]
