Fiction • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

An unnamed first-person protagonist (or is her name Jo?) is navigating the treacherous landscape of a first summer job and the even more perilous world of high school with her best friend Felicia, aka Flea. Sadly, Jo Anna Perrin’s flat narration has the listener struggling to engage with the story. She recounts all events in the same emotionless monotone. Whether recounting the horrific abuse a biker dad inflicts on his vexatious son or the 14-year-old narrator’s inner battle between loyalty to her best friend and her desire to be part of the high school in-crowd, Perrin’s delivery is too clinical—all facts, no feeling.
