    In the collection's title story, a pack of girls raised by wolves are painstakingly reeducated by nuns. In "Haunting Olivia", two young boys make midnight trips to a boat graveyard in search of their dead sister, who set sail in the exoskeleton of a giant crab. In "Sleepaway Camp for Disordered Dreamers", a boy whose dreams foretell implacable tragedies is sent to a summer camp for troubled sleepers (Cabin 1, Narcoleptics; Cabin 2, Sleep Apneics; Cabin 3, Somnambulists . . . ).

    Story

    The writing here is beautiful, the images lovely and haunting, BUT I'd read this one on paper. The performers as a group are mediocre for the most part, but the thing that has driven me to write my first review ever for Audible is that some of them used the wrong words. For example, in "Ava Wrestles the Alligator," the reader calls the sister's boyfriend Lucius. When I looked at the paper version, I discovered that his name is Luscious. Huge difference, don't you think?
