Hats off to narrator Rachel L. Jacobs! Not only does she get inside the soul of a 12-year-old girl, but she also brings lilting Scottish brogues to a cast of unique supporting characters. When Ada Ru is whisked off to Scotland for the summer, she is anything but pleased. When she arrives at Port Augustus, the pull of nearby Loch Ness treats Ada Ru to a host of new friends--one blind, one musical, one a determined scientist, and several loch watchers. As they come to support each other, new information on the stories of underwater dwellers in Loch Ness emerges. Jacobs highlights the inflections, sarcasm, mercurial confidence, and cocky esprit of Ada Ru. And Jacobs's Scottish lilt is music for the ears. The production concludes with a note from the author.
