"Piper did a tremendous job capturing Allison's humor and tone. It's almost insane how much she sounds like my internal voice for Allison." Madeleine Roux, Author, Allison Hewitt is Trapped
"Piper made every character feel brand new to me (and that's saying something, considering how much time I spent thinking and writing about them). I loved the way she voiced Hannah -- it was like she intuitively understood her character the same way I did. I had never truly "heard" her voice before - in terms of not being able to separate it from my own - but Piper made her feel distinct and real and nuanced. It was like I was seeing her as a separate entity (from myself) for the first time." -Kelly Quindlen, Author, Her Name in the Sky
"Piper sent this audio over the top in my opinion. She breathed life in to the story and elevated it which is always the sign of a great narrator to me. Piper's ability to be a vocal chameleon and bring realism and emotion to both male and female characters is uncommon in the audiobook world and makes me seek her books out." - Lydia Rella, Aural Fixation, London Bound by Amy Daws
