Delightful

What a wonderful way to keep children occupied during long winter months. The narrator brings Jilly to life in such a believable way, I am sure I would have been enthralled as a child. Audible books bring a new dimension to any story, but this is one of the best I have heard.

Just a Little Extra

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this short little book gives a BIG handful of who Jillian is. Loving and Helpful!

Who was your favorite character and why?

This book made me love Jillian even more, but still haven't decided on a favorite, they all have so many layers!

Have you listened to any of Kristin Condon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Kristin did awesome here as always. I sometimes forget that only one person is doing the reading.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

As always Julie leaves me laughing and crying. This particular book led to more laughs as Jillian goes about her life.

Cute short about a young southern girl

What did you love best about Ashlynn's Dreams Shorts?

The young girl's similes. She had some very interesting ones and the voice was very defined.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main character, the little girl, she had a unique voice.

Have you listened to any of Kristin Condon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Good vivid imagination of how a divorce affects a young child, very in depth of the child's thoughts during it.

Any additional comments?

The narrator was good, but she was too fast in narrative, especially the first few chapters. She's using a good southern voice with a good drawl, but she talks too fast for it. People in a south talk a lot slower overall, and with the vocabulary in the south, they kind of need to, because a few spots were hard to follow the narrator because she spoke them a little too fast.
