Rachel Delude's voice is gloomy and full of suspense, just like the summer in store for 16-year-old Ali. Ali goes to the lake with her aunt to babysit for her 4-year-old cousin. There, long-buried family secrets emerge, which threaten to drown them all. While the tone of the story is deliciously menacing, Delude's narration, with her soft voice and slow pace, is inviting. She uses shifts in timbre and demeanor to differentiate the girls in a way that is consistent but not overdone. As the story progresses, her voice reflects the darkening mood created by the mysterious little girl at the lake. A.M.P. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2013]
