Although the performance of this book isn't bad, it can sometimes be difficult to figure out if the author is talking or if she is recounting information from her mother's diaries. I would recommend reading this one rather than listening to it.
Looking for a great book for a kid or teen? Look no further than the AADL's Youth Award Winners collection. We've brought together winners of the Newbery, Caldecott, and Printz Awards into a single non-circulating collection. Some of these books are hard to find, but you can read them anytime by stopping in to the Downtown Library.
