A lively narration by Olivia Campbell captures the voice of 12-year-old Daisy Bauer as she recounts the ingenious plot, thought up by her friend Graham, to bust her father out of prison. Campbell's youthful and highly modulated voice reveals Daisy's frustration with her home life. Conveying spunkiness rather than self-pity, Campbell captures a spirited girl as she comes to terms with the truth about her father. Her narration offers vivid portrayals of other characters as well, including Graham's lisp after he loses his front teeth and Grandma's churlishness. Despite some unclear transitions between characters during dialogue, Campbell's sensitive performance enhances a touching story about friendship and growing up.
