Great anticipation fills Casey Smith as she starts middle school. Finally, she will have an opportunity to put her writing talents to work on the school newspaper. Creating "Real News" brings Casey new school friends and hard won knowledge about the responsibility of having a voice. Carine Montbertrand narrates the character of Casey with the bold determination of a single-minded girl bent on creating a front-page story about pollution at a local paper mill. As Casey becomes cognizant of fellow reporters and their talents, Montbertrand softens the edges and slows markedly to reflect Casey's change in perspective. In counterpoint to Casey's intensity, Montbertrand is enjoyably high-strung, knowledgeable, and detached as the other characters. Listen in to the world of "Real News"! A.R.
