Children Ages 8+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Nora Hunter voices 11-year-old Jilly P. with skill. Jilly’s world is filled with life-changing moments: the birth of a sibling who has challenges with hearing, tension-filled extended family gatherings, emerging friendships to navigate in person and in an online chat room, and the death of a friend of a friend among them. Nora Hunter matches each situation with believably voiced emotions. With an ensemble cast to take on supporting characters, Jilly’s interactions with each have richness and authenticity. Hunter projects Jilly responding differently to peers, family members, and other adults, and when she questions herself. This is real life, and author Alex Gino wants listeners to consider it in a thoughtful manner. A.R.
