Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Bahni Turpin exceptionally narrates Goldie Taylor's memoir about growing up under chaotic circumstances, never knowing when Mom might show up. Auntie Gerald runs a tight ship but neglects the danger in the house full of cousins. Goldie frequently sneaks off to safety in a locked bathroom or Grandma Alice's bedroom. Books save Goldie, and her teachers nurture her intellect and love of speech and writing. Once in high school, she is no longer a victim and finds her powerful voice. The epilogue illuminates reconciliation in a way that only looking back as an adult can. Turpin's performance of the distinctive range of characters adds a rich, emotive quality to this listening experience. L.J.C.A. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
