What a wonderful way to keep children occupied during long winter months. The narrator brings Jilly to life in such a believable way, I am sure I would have been enthralled as a child. Audible books bring a new dimension to any story, but this is one of the best I have heard.
Yes, this short little book gives a BIG handful of who Jillian is. Loving and Helpful!
This book made me love Jillian even more, but still haven't decided on a favorite, they all have so many layers!
Kristin did awesome here as always. I sometimes forget that only one person is doing the reading.
As always Julie leaves me laughing and crying. This particular book led to more laughs as Jillian goes about her life.
The young girl's similes. She had some very interesting ones and the voice was very defined.
The main character, the little girl, she had a unique voice.
Good vivid imagination of how a divorce affects a young child, very in depth of the child's thoughts during it.
The narrator was good, but she was too fast in narrative, especially the first few chapters. She's using a good southern voice with a good drawl, but she talks too fast for it. People in a south talk a lot slower overall, and with the vocabulary in the south, they kind of need to, because a few spots were hard to follow the narrator because she spoke them a little too fast.
