Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

I enjoyed the story. The characters were familiar. The life lessons were touching. This is a good book for young adults

First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

After spending all of the time listening to this book, and telling friends, along the way, how much I was enjoying the story, I feel like I may have to apologize to them after they get to the end of it. What a letdown! I really had been enjoying it all the way up to the last paragraph. The ending was that abrupt. I felt like there was a part of the book that I hadn't downloaded! And that left me dissatisfied.... Like I had been enjoying a good meal and someone suddenly cleared the table while I still had the fork in my hand.

Truer words could not be spoken, when in the introduction, the narrator says, "performed by Ruby Dee". The narrator is none other than Ruby Dee, and her performance is spectacular! I listened to this book with my teenage granddaughter and we were enthralled. I remember when I first read the book while in college, how I frequently read out loud, to audibly hear the voice of the characters of the story. It is a story begging to be read aloud. Ruby Dee masterfully captures all the characters and voices. It is beautiful and mesmerizing. I loved it. This is my all time favorite audio book.
