Great listen, wonderful characters, interesting plot line, and compelling reader. I would highly recommend.
I listened to this with my 3 kids, ages 14, 13 and 11. The oldest had already read the book but was eager to listen to it with us. We had a very long drive from New York to Lake Placid and back, and the time just flew! The story had us all enthralled. The reader, however, was a big distraction. My 11 year old daughter took special exception to the way the narrator imitated a 12 year olds'
voice, making her sound like a 4 year old. My older boy, the one who had already read the book, would throw up his hands whenever she voiced the part of the central character, Katness. According to him, Katness is supposed to be a very tough, cool girl and the narrator made her sound like a girly dope. Having said that, the story itself is so strong that it was usually possible for me to get past the annoying quirks of the reader and stay enthralled.
Sensitive, reflective, well written, but dull. My kids would have been very happy to turn it off and not finish it but I made them listen to the end. We kept waiting for a payoff that never came...
My four kids listened to this book together in the car, and all loved it. The narrator is pitch perfect--the story is wonderful. Will stay with you for a long time.
