ABRIDGED FOR AUDIO
I was unaware till the end "credits" that this had been abridged, which was frustrating to learn. I looooove Kaye Gibbons' "Ellen Foster", so was expecting another of her works (read by the author herself, nonetheless!) to be just as wonderful. Alas, it was extraordinarily underwhelming. The reading was lackluster and the story was without plot. It was a painful listen about growing up with a mother suffering from significant mental illness. Perhaps I should be grateful it was abridged!
