5.0 out of 5 stars Like an audio movie!
Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2022
Every time I saw the title of this book, the Tom Petty classic played in my head. 🇺🇸

Charlie is a very smart, autistic girl looking to save money to go to MIT and leave Sawyer, PA behind. She’s working an a deli called the Triple S while she saves. One day the deli owner is found dead, and each employee is considered a suspect. Charlie was caught on video at the deli the night her boss was murdered. There are many twists and you’ll have to listen for yourself!

I really connected with Charlie. She’s from a small town and dreams of making more of her life than her family. She doesn’t fit in with them and just wants to get away. The whole town seemed disgruntled and unhappy. Charlie was so smart; she was trying to earn the town scholarship to pay for MIT.

This @audible exclusive story is so much more than just your typical audiobook! There’s more acting and even some extra sounds like gravel crunching, chopping of the vegetables, etc. I thought this added so much to the story, especially since this was a thriller. It helped build suspense! It was like an audio movie! 🍿

This #audiobook available on Audible completely blew me away! It was truly an 𝘐𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘓𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘌𝘹𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 and it needs to be added to everyone’s playlist asap.

The story is told by the pov of Charlie, an autistic 17yo senior, who has been accepted to MIT and is working at a local deli to save money for college.
The owner of the deli is found dead, and Charlie was caught on camera at the scene of the crime. She doesn’t know who to trust and wants to protect her friends, so she chooses to not say anything. SelectiveMutism
