Young Adult Ages 14+ • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Bahni Turpin brings her sharp vocal talents and undaunted spirit to this dramatic epistolary tale. Through her seamless performance, listeners hear the diary entries, text messages, and emails collected by Alaine, a high-spirited and ambitious teen, as she dives into her Haitian family's royal ancestry--only to find herself on a mission to make peace with history. Turpin embodies Alaine's extroverted nature and instantly taps into the rhythmic tones and blended accents of French and Haitian Creole when Alaine finds herself in Haiti after her mother receives an unexpected medical diagnosis. Turpin smoothly navigates the emotional moments that bring Alaine's family together, along with the intrigue and danger that could leave her family cursed forever.
