When 16-year-old Ivy learns that her father is one of the two aged, identical Rumbaugh twins, the surprise is overshadowed by her obsessive love for her mother. But if the Rumbaugh curse plays true in Ivy's veins, she may take her inherited knack for taxidermy too far. With skill, Lisa Datz brings the subtle, dark humor laced throughout the story to the surface. She also does an admirable job delivering various international accents and the Rumbaugh twins' clipped way of communicating. Datz's crowning achievement with this performance, however, is her projecting of a confidence and chilling intelligence in Ivy that leaves listeners believing in her dark destiny.
