by | Read by Becca Battoe

Children Ages 8+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Becca Battoe narrates the story of 11-year-old Turtle, who is exiled to her mother’s childhood home of Key West during the summer of 1935. There she discovers a whole new world of quirky relatives and island adventures. Surrounded by her boisterous male cousins, Turtle must use all of her wits and courage to make a place for herself and discover her family history. Battoe gives Turtle a smart, no-nonsense voice that perfectly mirrors the girl’s spirited and candid personality. Battoe also deftly portrays each supporting character—from 4-year-old Buddy to the Cuban-born “Pork Chop”—with a unique and authentic voice. A delightfully adept performance.
