Enjoyable but poorly read

I quite enjoyed this - well enough written to keep me listening until the end - and will buy a copy for my 12 year old niece. I found the narrator lacked nuance and regularly mispronounced words so I was taken out of the story and became frustrated.

Story is fine, narrator is terrible

I though the story was interesting enough, though I did get bored and found myself not really caring about all the girl drama at several points. The ending was really chilling though, so that saved it for me.

The narrator has very weird intonation, she put emphasis on certain words that didn't really work, plus she would often SHOUT something and then say, "I whispered," and vice versa, which really took me out of it. Some very weird choices there which rubbed me the wrong way.
