Rebecca Soler's riveting narration and the engrossing writing of E. Lockhart make for gripping listening--even if the main character of this story is unlikable. Soler renders a perfect portrait of Jule, a detached 18-year-old who is poised for fight, flight, and inventing lies about her past. Soler shows Jule's polar traits of coldness and obsessiveness, especially when it comes to her wealthy best friend, Immy. The book's structure moves backwards in time, and Soler's narration keeps listeners poised for the next revelation as the fast-paced reversed plot reveals more and more of the precipitating events and an increasingly darker picture of Jule's nature. Lockhart again proves herself the queen of twists, and Soler matches her tone to make this psychologically complex narrative even more chilling. S.W.
