Ronnie - BTC 5
Winner of the In the Margins Fiction Award 2019, Recommended Reading.
Ronnie was the one child in the Simpson family to escape from the abuse and grow up in a normal home without being bounced from place to place or ending up on the street.
That was what the others all thought.
That was what Ronnie told herself.
When Ronnie could remember.
This story was well written and heartbreaking. It’s the story of how easily a child can be manipulated over and over and still not understand how badly she’s been mistreated. How the very system that is supposed to keep children safe can fail them. And how the ones we trust the most can do the most horrific things to us and get away with it.

Audiobooks allow readers to listen to a book rather than or simultaneously with reading the eBook or PDF file. They are also helpful if you are someone who needs to move around while learning.
Standard audiobooks are expensive to produce. There is nothing like a voice actor narrating a book. He can add nuance and humour and many other benefits to the audiobook. I still want to produce more human narrated audiobooks. However, in order to bring more of my catalog to you in audio form, I have used text-to-speech, computer-narration technology. This allows me to reach more readers who need assistance with reading. While auto-narration is improving, these audiobooks do sound robotic and do not contain the nuance of human voice narration. Some readers will find this too distracting, but for others, it is just the tool they need to help them enjoy more books.
