What members say
A realistic look inside an abusive situation
Would you consider the audio edition of Mazie Baby to be better than the print version?
I felt the audio edition of this book was very good. I both read it and then listened to it and found both very good. I love it when I can find a book that is being narrated by someone who can bring it to life instead of making it difficult to get through. Carly did a great job of allowing me to "see" what was happening in the story.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
I wouldn't say I was on the edge of my seat but I didn't want to stop listening.
Which character – as performed by Carly Robins – was your favorite?
Mazie, she took me through so many emotions.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I loved when Mazie realized she and her neighbor became friends. Mazie realized she was only concerned and not just being a nosy neighbor as she had always been told.
Any additional comments?
For anyone who has ever been in an abusive relationship, this book will have a lot you can relate to.
