Editorial Reviews

"Jill Hill narrates the audio book with a convincing accent that will have you thinking and talking with a drawl once you''ve finished listening. Her performance of Julie''s stark sentences captures the tone perfectly and will make you forget that Julie is indeed a fictional character."
