Becky Randle, a plain Missouri girl, receives a mysterious offer of a plane trip to New York City and the opportunity to become the most beautiful woman in the world: Rebecca Randle. Becky’s adventure takes her from Missouri to New York and then to London—where she nearly become a member of the royal family. Elizabeth Morton tackles the narration with aplomb, using accents to give a sense of place, especially in the aristocratic British accent of Prince Gregory and the Missouri drawl of Becky’s best friend. Morton capably reveals Becky’s uncertainty even while she imbues Rebecca’s words with bravado. The well-paced reading moves from emotional scenes to comical ones with ease, drawing the listener into Becky’s fairy-tale world. E.N. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
