Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Kimberla Lawson Roby has won adoring fans for her Rev. Curtis Black series, which includes Recorded Books' audio presentation of The Best of Everything.

In A Deep Dark Secret, a seemingly perfect 12-year-old girl harbors a terrible secret - one that threatens to tear her world apart. Convinced that her friends and family, including her mother, won't understand and will even blame her, Jillian keeps silent, enduring her pain, hoping that things will improve. But the problem only worsens. Just when things look bleakest, however, Jillian finds a surprising inner strength, and the power to hope may just be what saves her.

Ok

It was ok for me. It was very predictable. I think I may have expected more from this author, but oh well. It was not the worst book I have listened to.

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

I should have went with my first mind, I love this author and thought that she was going to do something else, but she didn't

What do you think your next listen will be?

I've moved on to Carl Weber

What does Cherise Boothe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

No

Could you see A Deep Dark Secret being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Nope
