Such a fun review for "THE BECKET LIST" from AudioFile Magazine

From www.audiofilemagazine:

"Narrator Amielynn Abellera establishes a spirited voice for fourth-grader Rebecca, a city girl whose family is about to move to Blackberry Farm. Rebecca cannot wait to be a country kid--however, once they arrive, she struggles to make friends. So she changes her name to Becket and makes a list of ways to adapt to country life. As Becket meets her new neighbors and tries to win them over, Abellera creates a series of unique voices. From the soft-spoken campers whom Becket tries to befriend to the hospitable farmer who teaches her to drive a tractor, Becket's soon-to-be friends help her adjust to her new home."

Great review for "LIZZIE FLYING SOLO" from AudioFile Magazine

From www.audiofilemagazine.com:

"Amielynn Abellera touchingly portrays 12-year-old Lizzie St. Claire as she adapts to challenges when her dad goes to jail. Lizzie and her supportive mother move into Good Hope's temporary housing. As Lizzie grieves for her old life, she notices Birchwood Stables and hopes to make her dream of having a horse come true. Well-realized descriptions of diverse settings are vivid, and each character is realistic. Lizzie's matures as she visits the stables and helps others at Good Hope. Abellera's delivery of Lizzie reciting poetry is touching. Lizzie will inspire listeners by working hard for what she wants and always being her own person. Wonderful twists and a spirited conclusion maintain listener engagement."

Excellent review for "I, CLAUDIA" from AudioFile Magazine

From www.audiofilemagazine.com:

"Narrator Amielynn Abellera's spirited reading of this loose retelling of I, CLAUDIUS will keep listeners riveted with her unique characterizations and theatrical delivery. With a limp, speech impediment, and heart condition, Claudia doesn't fit the model of the suave politician, but during her first year at Imperial Day Academy, a posh Los Angeles prep school, she is swept into the political machine. Abellera's depictions of Imperial Day's elite alternate between laugh-aloud funny and chilling. Students include surfer-boy drug dealers, venomous homecoming queens, and quirky sidekicks. Abellera voices Claudia perfectly, highlighting her hesitation and bewilderment but also revealing her resolve as she gains confidence and navigates through corruption, conspiracies, and greed. A thoroughly engaging audiobook with thrills, romance, and intrigue."

Great review for "THE INCREDIBLE TRUE STORY OF THE MAKING OF THE EVE OF DESTRUCTION"


From www.audiofilemagazine.com:

Amielynn Abellera energetically narrates this hyperkinetic, surreal YA adventure set in 1984. When Hollywood comes to Griffin Flat, Arkansas, sarcastic Laura Ratliff is excited to win a walk-on role in the movie EVE OF DESTRUCTION despite her genuine fears about the possibility of nuclear war. When an on-set explosion triggers a possible nuclear incident, Laura faces a whole new set of problems. Abellera's theatrical delivery and exaggerated accents are perfect for this high-concept examination of how our worst enemies are sometimes ourselves. She highlights the audiobook's footnotes, which are mostly insights on the 1980s for contemporary YA listeners. This story has no intention of taking itself seriously, and Abellera nails its black humor.
