    For radio shock jock Nancy Neptune, life is just one big promotion. But when she's sent to work at a radio station near a polygamist compound in Utah, trouble comes in triplicate. In a land where one good wife deserves another, Nancy Neptune hooks up with a drag queen and a one-armed reporter to rescue a mentally challenged polygamist who is being abused by one of his nine mommies and neglected by the other eight. Jitters is narrated through a series of news reports.

    Story

    Quirky is a prefect description. It is fun, interesting and a unique story. A clash of two worlds enhanced by the depth of the vocal range of the various characters. Great vocal coaching, each character’s voice is engaging and believable. I love the combination of historic, cultural social issues all colliding in this fast paced narrative. Ms. Park’s work reminds me of Sarah Vowell. I was mesmerized by the story and I didn’t want it to end. It is highly entertaining

    In the eyes of Nadine, a polygamist and serial bride, nudging her husbands into heaven is a testament to love. Even Nancy Neptune, a notorious shock jock, is gobsmacked by Nadine's so-called Celestial Send-Offs. Things go to hell in a hand basket when Nadine offs the wrong guy and is charged with assisted suicide. Meanwhile, Blue McKenna has problems of her own. A power outage has leveled Blue's medical marijuana dispensary.

    Matthew Jacobson says: "Hilarious – especially for Utahns!"

    Story

    This multi-voiced audio book is brimming over with a wide variety of unforgettable, irreverent characters. They run the gambit from caustic to sympathetic, clueless to insightful. Adele Park has an irresistible voice, she creates an outrageous and entertaining glimpse into a madcap world of medical marijuana dispensaries, Celestial Send-Offs, wacky underground musicians and radio shock jocks. It’s a laugh riot with entertaining unanticipated twists don’t miss it.
