Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Julie Maisey

Young Adult Young Adult • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

A British teen sends a series of letters to a death row inmate in Texas. Zoe (not her real name since she’s confessing her part in the death of a boy) tells the story of her family, friends, romance, and death. Julie Maisey delivers the salutation of each letter with a slow, stilted narration, as if she were reading as Zoe writes it out. The rest of the letters she reads fluidly and evenly. Her British accent and vocal expression are perfect for the funny and introspective Zoe. While the mystery builds as Zoe gets closer to ending her story, Maisey’s narration remains true to Zoe’s voice. With this story the listener gets an inside look at the mind and emotions of a teenager who is exploring love and grief. E.N.
