Children Ages 10+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Cindy Kay takes listeners inside the world of 12-year-old Louise, who lives with her mother in a truck. Although she has a beautiful singing voice, Lou has undiagnosed sensory processing disorder (SPD), which makes it difficult for her to endure the live performances her mother signs her up for. Unexpected sounds and physical contact are painful for Lou. Kay gives Lou a breathy, soft voice reflecting her vulnerability and sensitivity while her mom sounds pushy and oblivious. When Child Protective Services sends Lou to live with her aunt and uncle, she struggles to adjust, but with help from new friends and supportive adults, she learns ways to manage her SPD. Kay's sympathetic portrayal evokes hope in this uplifting audiobook. S.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
