Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Katherine Kellgren

Young Adult Young Adult • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Narrator Katherine Kellgren conjures a believable array of American and European voices for this dark mix of prep school intrigue and demonic magic. The five 15-year-old wards of a magnetic but sinister governess enroll at New York City's most exclusive private school and use the special powers she grants them to upend its social hierarchy. Kellgren vigorously embodies the characters, providing an icy purr for evil governess Madame Vileroy; a superior air for competitive Victoria Faust; and warm, hesitating tones for the brilliant wallflower Bice Faust. Kellgren judiciously keeps the story moving, especially during the novel's suspenseful climax. A.B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]
