“This full cast reading is first rate. The story captures the angst of young girls and illustrates how quickly loyalties can change and the devastation shunning can cause… Because the stories are told in the first person, there is a terrific poignancy expressed by the excellent readers. They reveal the underpinnings of each girl’s personality with unfailing precision.” — KLIATT Jul 2004

“…the acting of the young ladies was superb! They sounded very real and believable.” — Audiobook Cafe May 2003
