by | Read by Octavia Spencer

Children Ages 8+ • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Author and narrator Olivia Spencer knows her characters well and sounds as if she's having great fun bringing them to life. Twelve-year-old Randi Rhodes has the pluck of a do-it-yourself detective with a black belt in tae kwon do and the angst of a teen who is navigating the loss of her mother. In Spencer's delivery, the town authorities--from mayor to chief of police, town crank, and ice cream parlor gossip--all reflect the twang and drawl of Deer Creek, Tennessee. Spencer brings boyishness to Randi's new friend, D.C., but is a bit off mark with her Boston accent for Pudge, who is new to town. The mystery involves a missing time capsule, which could help save Randi's dying town. A.R. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2015]
