    Thirteen-year-old Emily Houchens doesn’t have many friends; her classmates find her strange. When one day she happens upon a dead body hidden in the woods near her house in Roma, Kentucky, she decides not to tell anyone about her discovery - a choice that begins to haunt her. Susanna Mitchell has always been a good girl, the dutiful daughter and wife. While her older sister, Ronnie, trolled bars for men and came home late, Susanna kept a neat house, a respectable job, and a young daughter.

    Would you listen to The Next Time You See Me again? Why?

    I am about 3/4 through the novel and completely engrossed by the story. The narration, however, is distractingly bad. The reader has a nice voice but really butchers the southern accents- it sounds more like a yankee's caricature of backwoods hicks than anything approaching reality. Even worse is the way she uses inflection- so off-target that it seems she isn't even listening to herself. She frequently misinterprets the dialogue and I find myself trying to replay the scene in my head with proper inflection so it makes sense. This is probably the only time I have regretted choosing an audio over a print (electronic) book; I'd have a much better experience listening to my own inner narrative!
