Rowena wants her new classmates to see that she isn't different from them, but her muteness, sign language, and volcanic temper keep her at a distance. Her adoring, but wacky and often wildly inappropriate, father keeps Rowena constantly embarrassed. Despite the grief of losing both her mother and best friend, Rowena is remarkably well adjusted as she tries to make friends and keep her loving father in check. Mary- Anne Fahey does a stellar job portraying the emotions and communications of this smart, good-hearted girl. She speaks clearly enough that her Australian accent adds flavor, not difficulty. Unique characters and an intriguing story make BLABBER MOUTH a success. J.M.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
