Jitters - A Pure Pleasure to Hear

I had Adele Park on our It Matters Radio broadcast and Jitters was my first introduction to her tale of polygamy, marijanna and life in this fun Morman Community.

You will laugh, you will howl in fact, as you are introduced to each character and follow their journey and quirks through life.

All I can say is you will not be sorry and I must confess Nancy Neptune is one of my favorite characters and couldn't wait for the next audio book, Yikes.

Funny and Fresh

As someone that works in radio it's fun to hear a story about a shock jock in a fresh new place like Utah that I don't know much about. This book sets the scene for Adele's series as we learn about the region she's from. However, the characters are over the top outlandish and memorable. She takes a stereotype to the max in a way that will make you laugh. No harm intended. All in good humor.
