Strong story and characters

Would you listen to Tell Me a Secret again? Why?

I would listen to this again for Rand. She's a very enjoyable character. The story was really enthralling as well, but I think it treats teen pregnancy a little too lightly.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was pleasant enough. I'm sorry the characters didn't suffer a visible development. Except for Rand the rest of them remain pretty much the same. Would have loved to see her mother repent a little more.

Which character – as performed by Jenna Lamia – was your favorite?

Well... Rand, but I don't think it was because of the performance. :)

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

No, but I listened to it after a long list of bad books so maybe that's also a reason why I enjoyed it so much. It's not a gem, but deserves at least one read.

Any additional comments?

Try it, you might be pleasantly surprised ^^.
