With a gentle Southern accent and a youthful voice, narrator Cassandra Morris embodies the bereft Annie Lee after her father's unexpected death. Starting sixth grade alone after being ghosted by her former best friends, Annie Lee struggles to carve a new life for herself, first by making an unexpected friend in the tough skater girl, Mitch, at school and then by secretly befriending an elderly pianist named Ray and taking piano lessons from him. Morris gracefully captures the emotional and economic toll of such a devastating loss as Annie Lee and her mother navigate lies, grief, and moments of connection in their shifting relationship. Mitch and her family's neutral accents suggest the differences between the two families. S.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
