It's hard to understand why Lee Fiora of Indiana actually stays on for all four years at the prestigious Ault School of Massachusetts. She is the quintessential outsider without quite enough brains, and certainly not the beauty, to break into the cliques of wealth that surround her. Julie Dretzin starts out with a core of kindness and understanding for this angst-ridden teenager, but Lee Fiora 's time at Ault is not sufficiently entertaining to hold the listener's interest. Though Dretzin flirts with East Coast and Latino accents, she does not emphasize them. Since the book is supposed to be droll, the narration underlines the dullness and savageness of boarding schools. B.H.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
