Highly recommend Emma Fielding as the reader. She has a great ability to change her voice as different characters are talking. And her British accents contribute to geographic placement of the story.

This book is a hoot. The main part of the story perfectly captures the England of 1964 that I remember from my few years of living there. The main character, Barbara/Sophie, is a delightful blend of brash, street smart, naive, and very human. She is very easy to love and cheer for as she takes her wonderful ride from Miss. Blackpool to stardom on the telly in a BBC sitcom.
