"Part of the high-interest series Secrets, this audiobook includes support for reluctant readers through narrator Kelly Pruner's clear diction, easy pacing, and decidedly conversational tone. In Canada, 1964, 16-year-old Malou lives in an orphanage. When a fire destroys it, she receives a single clue about her parentage and sets off on her own. The clue brings her to a town with an unusually large number of children of color—a town full of secrets. Mature topics are introduced but handled age-appropriately. Besides delivering the occasional Canadian "eh?", Pruner doesn't attempt to effect Canadian, First Nation, or African–American accents or manners of speech. Listeners will feel Malou could be any contemporary friend."
Kelly's a total pro and a total pleasure to work with! She can jump from one emotion to another with ease, takes direction really well, and invests the role with her own personal touch that really brings it to life. Thanks Kelly!

Kelly was extremely versatile in the studio and delivered fantastic quality performances for the lead role on our project. Her ability to find the right mood for any given line was remarkable, I recommend her highly.
