Publisher's Summary

Noelle Mitchell never explained why she abruptly ran away from home at the age of fifteen. All anyone knew was that her boyfriend Reno convinced her to abandon her family. But when she shows up at the family house on Christmas thirteen years later what’s revealed about her absence will either tear her family further apart or bring them closer together.

    "27 minutes???!!!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    NO! Had know idea it was only 27 minutes, I NEVER would have wasted my $2.95. SO disappointed in the length :-(


    Would you recommend Zane's I'll Be Home for Christmas to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, not worth the time.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Heather Alicia Simms?

    Probably, if it were something I really wanted to hear.


    Could you see Zane's I'll Be Home for Christmas being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not in its current state. LMN. If it were a complete story.

    Story
    "heart touching"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Even thought it was short it was touching it was sweet and filled my heart with mixed emotuons. I just saw all my trials pass through my mind and said if she could keep standing then so could I. It just does something to you as a child, siblind, parent, and individual.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zane's I'll Be Home for Christmas?

    When her and her father were speaking and she was telling him everything that has happened and his reaction.


    Which character – as performed by Heather Alicia Simms – was your favorite?

    The father was my favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. And I did

    I love to listen good books. African American urban literature is my favorite. I hope to see them in more BoGo and discount sales.

    Story
    "Perception is in the reality of the receiver."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This is a good example of how what you say can be taken so literally it drives an unnecessary wedge into family unit.


    What did you like best about this story?

    After all those years family love was stronger than individual opinions.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes.


    If you could rename Zane's I'll Be Home for Christmas, what would you call it?

    I don't know....


    Any additional comments?

    I am glad to see that this story did not have explicit sexual encounters.

    Story
    "WHAT THE H***"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If there was an actual story associated that would'be been nice.


    What was most disappointing about Zane’s story?

    Everything this was not a story it was an excerpt.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Have a full book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Zane's I'll Be Home for Christmas?

    There were hardly any scenes at all in this "book"


    Any additional comments?

    I want my money back!

    "Disappointment"
    Would you try another book from Zane and/or Heather Alicia Simms?

    Yes


    Has Zane's I'll Be Home for Christmas turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Heather Alicia Simms’s performance?

    I didn't like or dislike her, for me it wasn't about the narrator it was totaly about the story.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I know it only cost me like 3$ but it was not even worth the 3$, I could have spent that money on an ice cream and got more enjoyment. Sorry Zane. But I would like to say I have read many of your other books and am a true fan and will continue to read more but this is one I wish I could get the 27 min read and 3$ back in my life.
