    One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls - a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just "troubled". Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side - learning to harness their powers, control their magic, and live in the normal world. Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she?

    Angela says: "Outstanding!!"
    "Good story, difficult to listen too."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book. It wouldn't be the first I would choose, but I wouldn't advise against it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Born at Midnight?

    Discovering the love story behind everything.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She interpreted simple sentence structure improperly. Pauses in the wrong places, voice changes that I felt were unnecessary and distracting. I'm not sure if she herself has a southern accent or she was attempting it for the main characters sake, but I would have much prefered a straight read. Some of my issue with how the delivery was made I can see may not be the narrators fault. Part of my annoyance was with "she said", or
    "he said", after every spoken line. I may also be in the minority when it comes to different voices, ect. in the delivery. I just want the book read to me with inflection. One person altering their voice, unless they are gifted at that, is just distracting. My imagination will do the rest, just as it would if I were reading it myself. I also wondered if the narrator had pre-read the book. You know, practiced. For the flow to have been as bad as it was at times it made me think she hadn't. I'm not sure what protocol is followed by the narrators, but practicing doesn't seem like a bad idea. We are paying for these audio's after all.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.
