Audible Editor Reviews

Three girls from the country share an inner city house in Melbourne while starting university. This charming young adult audiobook tracks these characters as they come of age while learning about love, secrets, and betrayal. Kate Hood performs Queen Kat, Carmel, and St Jude Get a Life with warmth and compassion. She differentiates each of the three main characters smoothly, which is key to the success of this audiobook. As a result, listeners really get to know these young women, and it is sad to leave them when the story ends.

Publisher's Summary

A compelling story of three unforgettable young women, in the tradition of Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants.

This is a wonderfully passionate and absorbing novel exploring the lives of three very different girls, in their first year out of school, who share an inner city house.

All three girls come from the same small country town. Katrina, privileged, beautiful, and sophisticated, is the daughter of a wealthy medical family; Carmel, from a struggling farming family is overweight and inhibited, but has a gift for music; and Jude, a medical student, is the daughter of a Chilean doctor who was murdered when she was two.

What the Critics Say

"Three young Australian women from the same small town end up housemates when they head off to university in Melbourne. Each tells a portion of the story of their first year away from home in a coming-of-age story that is thought-provoking, funny, and full of passion. Kate Hood brings these characters to life with a nuanced and complex performance. Her presentation embodies the characters' unique perspectives and their very different personalities. Each confronts circumstances that give rise to intense feelings and events, which Hood handles deftly. She is an engaged narrator whose fondness for each character shines through." (AudioFile)

"McCarthy makes the reader’s heart hurt with compassion." (Herald Sun)

"A multi-layered story that will have the reader laughing and crying, probably at the same time." (The West Australian)
