    "Interesting"

    I enjoyed this book, although I knew the outcome at the beginning. The redeeming factor in a situation like this is the unfolding of the story, and there I think the author did a good job of getting to the obvious. It was a bit drawn out and repetative, but a good book nonetheless. The narrator was annoying, too may "MOUTH" sounds going on, but tolerable.

    "Monroe take your own advice . .God help this book"

    This book is a waste of time and money... the reactions to every misfortune were unreal. The fat references were terrible - seems the author thinks fat and ugly are partners. It took all I had to finish hoping the end would . .? Well it didn't...shallow characters, mindless plot. Sorry this is my first negative review which is hurtful for me.

    "Good book"

    Other than the annoying swallowing noises that the narrator kept making the book was good.

    Story
    "Entirely too predictable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't think anybody would enjoy it more. Maybe a teenager who hasn't experienced much in life yet. It was just too pedictable. I knew who the perpetrator was once she started talking about that backpack.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Monroe again?

    I like Mary Monroe and enjoy lots of her other books. I would and will listen to her again.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader from the first book, Denise Burse, was a better reader. She had more passion and doesn't smack her lips every five seconds like Patricia Floyd. That is so annoying and I had to stop listening several times because it just became too annoying for me to continue.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I like that the characters were still there and that Rhoda and Annette are still friends. I wish that Annette wasn't so gullible and easy to take advantage of. It seems like in the previous book she was a lot stronger character.


    Any additional comments?

    Nothing can be changed now the book is already in production.

    Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...

    "Friendship out of Control"

    Getting started with this book was very slow for me. That should have been a clue to stop reading, because some how I could not. When the letters and prank call starts coming, I wanted to know, who is so mean to do something like this. You really want to know what kind of person would really go to this extreme. Thumbs up the narrator, the depiction between the characters voice help a lot in this book. I usually can figure out the ending of a story/book before time. But this one through me. I would have never have guessed that a child so young would do something so devious. I think I was so outdone…..Outdone by the fact that a grown woman would be so intrigue with a best friend child, she would go against the very things she did not want for here own child. The things that she allowed her friends child to do, was just outrageous.
    In a way she got what she deserved.
