Excellent Audio Presentation

The reader of this book did an amazing job of reading the book with different voices for each character. Her skill in remembering each characters voice and providing just the right intonation and feeling made the book come to life. :o)
The book itself is also a great work of art because it helped us understand life for immigrants in the early 1900 through the eyes of a little girl much like my own.

just ok

Narration is very flat lined,story is just ok when compared to Addy or Kit. I don't like the fact that she doesn't listen to her parents so frequently, don't want kids to listen to that.

Amazing

I like Rebecca because it shows how you have to do something your parents don't always what you to do.
It shows you how to be brave and have chutzpah.
