Teens Sam and Emily found each other in I'LL BE THERE. Now, Laura Jennings's deliberately paced narration highlights their deep emotions as their blossoming relationship is threatened. Jennings's quiet, even delivery suits the serious teenagers who are desperate to hold on to each other even as a new, quirky girl looks to capture Sam's attention. Jennings's gruff timbre and somber tone are well suited to many of the characters and the tension that arises as Emily is kidnapped. Through the climax, Jennings's pace never wavers, allowing profound emotions like fear and desperation to shine without being overshadowed by melodramatics. Listeners will find themselves absorbed by this compelling novel, and though the experience would be heightened by listening to the first one, it's not necessary.
