THE LEAF READER

by | Read by Lori Gardner

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Lori Gardner portrays the uncertainty of high school junior Marnie Wells, who seeks a niche among the popular teens. Gardner depicts Marnie's relief when she uses an old book of her aunt's to learn to read tea leaves for her friends. But when a boy asks about his missing girlfriend, Gardner captures Marnie's discomfort at what might be a true ability. Gardner's intense delivery helps make Marnie's feelings believable, and she deftly handles subplots as Marnie learns of her family's psychic abilities, experiences first love, and uncovers sinister schemes. When a murdered peer is discovered and Marnie uses her psychic gifts, Gardner emphasizes the mounting tension. In a happy ending, Gardner's voice reflects Marie's determination and acceptance of her power. S.W. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2017]
