Publisher's Summary

It's a hot summer's day, and 12-year-old Peanut and her cousins are being driven into town on the back of a trailer drawn by Uncle Toby in his tractor. It's Peanut's "mean time" age, and she's about to do something she'll regret.

This short story by New York Times best-selling author Karin Slaughter is taken from the exclusive audiobook collection The Unremarkable Heart, and Other Stories.

    "This is not worth the $1.36 I spent on it."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This read like the introduction to a book. Felt like it was only 2-3 very short paragraphs - I wouldn't even classify it as a short story because it really felt like it was just starting to tell a story.


    What three words best describe Shannon Cochran’s voice?

    Pleasant but forgettable


    Any additional comments?

    Not really a short story in my opinion - more like an opening to a book. I expected more even in only 17 minutes.
