The acclaimed young-adult author of Among the Hidden, Margaret Peterson Haddix captivates listeners with her enthralling tales.

As Lindsay Scott basks in the glow of being TV's most popular child star, she suddenly begins to hear everything that's being said about her - all the time, and from every place on the globe. After her apparent nervous breakdown, Lindsay disappears from the public eye until - years later - a tabloid claims her father is holding her hostage. Although the truth is actually much stranger, the article triggers a series of events that forces 16-year-old Lindsay to finally confront who she really is.

    " 7th&up. I usually like Haddix, but was not impressed with this offering. The protagonist was not very likable. The plot, once fully revealed, was not as interesting as I thought it would be. The conclusion was weak, all nice and happy, ends tied neatly and with little believability. I should have re-read Running Out of Time, instead. "

    " This book by Margaret Peterson Haddix was very well written and has a plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The book is about a former actress, Lindsay Scott, from a canceled sitcom, Me and the Kids. She hasn't acted for 5 years and she's been hiding from the world in her small town Springdale, plus, she can hear anyone in the world talking about her at any given time. Her house is run-down and not much happens there. But out of nowhere, she is kidnapped by two other teens that think she is being held hostage by her crazy father (Her mother left when she was a baby). When the two boys see that they are mistaken they let Lindsay leave to go back home, dropped off by Toby's- one of the kidnappers- cousin Roz. As the book goes on, Lindsay discovers things that she does and doesn't want to know- where her mother is and why she can hear others. By the end of the book LIndsay has many good friends that were once her enemies and a new family to grow with. "

    " The beginning was really good, a little bit confusing, but the ending was weak, rushed, and boring. "

    " Great concept (I always love Haddix's setups), but once she got into the mythology of the main character's mysterious hearing-voices power, the story's credibility no longer held up for me. Still, Haddix is an expert at pacing and this was an enjoyable read. "
