Jada Jackson is the most average of teenage girls. She, like the other girls, has never considered any option other than to attend the local, completely average high school. When the mysterious Miss Genevieve informs Jada that she has been invited to enroll in a seemingly prestigious, yet curious, school for young ladies, Jada hardly hesitates to accept the offer. But on her very first day, Jada learns that Miss Genevieve's promises are more fraught than they initially seemed.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Miss Genevieve's Finishing School?
The story builds gradually with an extremely satisfying ending.
What about Je Nie Fleming’s performance did you like?
Excellent characterizations; clear diction and warm voice.
Any additional comments?
This delightful cautionary tale is a wonderful short story ideal for listeners of any age. Obviously slanted toward young girls whose self-images are constantly blasted by media images and peer pressure, this should be heard by everyone from fifth grade up (and younger for the precocious).
