Editorial Reviews

June Juanico - with the assistance of the sweetly superior voice of Bernadette Flaggler - brings to a light the young, vibrant, and not-yet-iconic Elvis Presley with Elvis in the Twilight of Memeory. Originally meeting the ordinary young man named Elvis at age 17, June shares her memories of being the first girlfriend of not-yet-crowned King of Rock and Roll. Also learn about the family life that Elvis shared with his mother, Gladys. Listening to this is like a small time-machine to an earlier age of Americana, told with boundlessly tender love.

Publisher's Summary

June Juanico was just 17 when she met Elvis Presley in 1955. As his first serious girlfriend, she was uniquely placed at a time when he was on the cusp of superstardom. This is her memoir of the summer of 1956, which they spent together, and an insight into the genesis of a star.

Lucky Girl - To be favored by Elvis

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

June Juanico certainly should have felt very special to have been so close to Elvis. I could almost feel exactly how she felt when describing those fun and intimate times she had with the King. What an experience - what memories! I enjoyed listening to the audiobook except each time the narrator, Bernadette Flaggler, pronounced "Biloxi". That made me cringe. Narrators should learn how the locals pronounce names before trying to narrate a book. Otherwise, she did a good job, and I would recommend the book. June detailed her experiences well.

Who was your favorite character and why?

June. She included lots of details.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No

Any additional comments?

All in all, a good and enjoyable listen, except for some of the pronunciation. Narrator did not know how the people in the area pronounce "Biloxi". Being from the area, I found it hard to listen each time she said it.
