“This romantic coming-of-age story will immediately draw in listeners…Listening to Reed’s narration of this dialogue-rich work is akin to attending a play. Her expert use of pauses, shifts in voices and quiet passion bring this story to life.”—Publishers Weekly
“A variety of great characters, all fully voiced by Reed, and vivid descriptions of summer theater by the sea make this an excellent choice for aspiring actors. Reed captures the enthusiasm and yearning of the young actors’ voices.” – KLIATT
