    "Great story, meh narration"

    Gingerbread is one of my favorite books. I probably wouldn't be the person I am if it wasn't for this story. I loved how honest it was about sex and being a teenage girl. I wish the narration was better, maybe a bit younger sounding but still I don't feel like I wasted my money getting this.

    "wrong narrator for slang"

    Story was engaging, but the narrator was NOT a match! She sounded very awkward with the style of language: a middle aged woman reading the part of a teenager, and the slang used in the book sounded very uncomfortable in this reader's mouth! It became embarrassing to listen--the subject matter was edgy, but the right narrator could have made it more comfortable.
