Life is going very well indeed for Remy Marland and Morgan Campbell, the boy she has a crush on. They're both taking driver's education, dreaming of how being able to drive will change everything and making tentative steps toward dating. All this changes when they take part in a prank that turns deadly and they have to face up to their part in the tragedy. Guidall's reading is too thoughtful, understated and subdued in tone and pace. As a result, the book, which is a real page-turner, doesn't translate effectively into audio in this performance, which seems endless. Either an abridgment is called for or a more dynamic, energetic performance. S.S.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
