Narrator Imani Parks guides listeners deep into the heart of a creepy ghost story that explores America's segregated past. Iris is the captain of her school's step team, and Parks gives her a light, youthful voice perfectly suited for her wide-eyed eagerness. After Iris and her friend Daniel uncover the name "Avery Moore" on a tombstone in an abandoned cemetery, the ghost of Avery begins to visit Iris, asking to be remembered. Parks slowly ramps up the sense of foreboding as Iris and Daniel discover that Avery was one of the nameless nine African-Americans who first desegregated their school and Avery's voice becomes more menacing with her demands. Parks rounds out the performance with a range of convincingly portrayed adult characters. S.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
