Children Family Listening • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Melodies abound throughout this engaging novel based on the actual story of Libby Dodge, a 16-year-old sent to the Sherborn Prison for women in the early 1900s. Carmen Viviano-Crafts brings Libby alive as she finds her place in the prison world, and The Full Cast Family adds just the right spice to the hard-boiled inmates Libby befriends during her time there. Although its setting is dreary, this is a hopeful story, punctuated by bursts of songs by Gilbert and Sullivan as the inmates strive to carry out a production of THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE. Libby and her friends will tug on listeners' heartstrings and make them want to sing along. D.L.M. 2006 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
