Narrator Carrington MacDuffie portrays 12-year-old Cammie, a tomboy, with a youthful voice. Her story takes place during the summer of 1959 at the prison where her father works. MacDuffie perfectly captures the grief and anger Cammie feels after her mother's death. To fill the emptiness, she decides that Eloda, a prisoner who works as her family's housekeeper, will be her mother figure. But Eloda is to be released soon. MacDuffie portrays Eloda in a stern yet compassionate voice that reflects her nurturing but distant nature. Listeners will be captivated with the story's historical details, including depictions of the TV show "American Bandstand" and the intricacies of the prison life, as well as the overarching story of Cammie as she comes to understand herself.
