Narrator Elizabeth Robbins's remarkably youthful voice whisks listeners away to a summer of outdoor adventure and romance as Lilah, a teenager with hearing loss, becomes a junior counselor at a camp for Deaf and blind kids. Lilah is ecstatic to be immersed in Deaf culture even though she is self-conscious about her American Sign Language skills. When a character is using ASL, the sounds of hands moving to form the signs are heard underneath the narrator's voice. Additionally, Lilah's hearing loss is often expressed through muffled audio. Robbins creates distinct voices for the older counselors who help Lilah find her place in the Deaf community. This detailed and thoughtful production is a compelling sensory experience for young listeners. J.E.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
