    Eighteen-year-old Jenny Morton has a horrific secret: her touch spreads a deadly supernatural plague, the "Jenny pox." She lives by a single rule: Never touch anyone. A lifetime of avoiding any physical contact with others has made her isolated and painfully lonely in her small rural town.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Editing. See narration comment below.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The premise was a break from the common story line.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ashlyn Selich?

    Only if the narrator gets an editor. There are multiple locations where the narrator repeats a line in an attempt to get a better reading. Unfortunately the earlier versions are not removed. This gets very annoying when the narrator repeats the same line 3 or 4 times.


    Any additional comments?

    Many young adult novels can appeal to adults too. Unless you want to relive the worst parts of high school, this is not recommended for those who were not in the cool or popular crowd. The memories this book brought out are far from pleasant.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Shadow Reader?

    The main character acts like a hormone addled teenager when she is supposed to be in her mid-20s. Being unable to control ones own libido is should not be a plot point.


    What was most disappointing about Sandy Williams’s story?

    The main character


    What three words best describe Amy Rubinate’s performance?

    Best she could do considering the story.


    What character would you cut from The Shadow Reader?

    I would give the main character a little maturity.
