Narrator Katherine Littrell channels 18-year-old roller derby star Lia through a wild ride of emotions. Her voice moves easily from super-confident bravado to frustrated fear when the rare liver disease Lia was born with reaches a crisis point that requires a transplant. Listeners are in Lia's mind as she moves from shocked disbelief to gradual awareness of her new life-or-death reality while trying to maintain her strength and confidence. Secondary characters are also brought vividly to life. Her best friend, Sibby, is forceful, turning Lia's need into a cause célèbre. Dr. Wah's voice is patient, reassuring, and respectful as she speaks to Lia like an adult. Will, a friend from the past, has the teasing voice she needs to maintain normalcy.
