A plot as full of mystery as a dusty old attic and a host of highly charged events--from poisonings to marriage--make this novel by Newbery Award-winning author Cynthia Voight a perfect choice for audio. The narrator adopts a flat New England twang which is the precise embodiment of the novel's north-of-Boston setting. Her subtle shifts from voice to voice bring each character to life--from the sturdy naivete of twelve-year-old Jean Wainwright to the submerged menace of Enoch Callender. In portraying all the emotions which swirl around these characters and events--the impassioned plea, the thoughtful hesitation, the sudden burst of laughter, the realization of love . . . or horror--Caruso's reading really shines.
