“Some fantastic audiobooks were published for teens this year; these are the standouts.” —Lee Catalano, committee chair
“Greer brings an adolescent enthusiasm and stuck-up attitude to spare to her skillful characterization of 12-year-old Annabel… The results are prickly, funny and touching – a good source of material for Greer’s multilayered performance.” —Publisher’s Weekly
“Effortlessly, Greer differentiates between what [the character] is thinking and what she is actually saying… Greer masterfully gives personality to male and female voices while keeping older listeners riveted.” —AudioFile Magazine
“Greer captures the inner and actual voices of teens with perfection.” —AudioFile Magazine
“Caitlin Greer paces the story perfectly, drawing out each scene, pulling each character into the drama.” —AudioFile Magazine
“Major audio must-have!” —School Library Journal
“[This] National Book Award winner translates well to the audio format, with Caitlin Greer perfectly capturing [the character’s] voice in this intricate coming-of-age novel.” —School Library Journal
“Greer embodies [her] first-person narration, capturing her insecurities, complexities, and spontaneity. With just-right pauses and emphasis, Greer heightens [the author’s] humor.” —Booklist
“Caitlin Greer personifies the longing and desire of a 15-year-old girl coming of age during a turbulent time in history.” —Booklist
“Greer’s tones emulate teenager Evie yet easily morph to older characters as well. Flirtatious Peter introduces himself to Evie with a suave sureness. Inadvertently foreshadowing tragedy that will befall the family, Greer imbues Joe with a rough abruptness that is indicative of postwar moodiness.” —Booklist
“Greer’s accent and ‘strange’ vocabulary are so authentic that listeners will feel they’ve been transported down under. The colloquialisms sound right now, as Greer speaks in the cool and ironic intonations of with-it teens.” —Booklist
“Greer’s narration aptly captures many moods and revelations, large and small, without belittling their importance.” —Booklist
