    In this follow-up to Austenland, Charlotte Kinder is eager to escape the numbness she feels after her divorce. Deciding to get away, she visits the Regency-themed Pembrook Park resort in England, where talented actors set the perfect scene. But with everyone playing a role, it’s hard to distinguish reality from fantasy. So when Charlotte’s heart stirs, she wonders if she’s simply caught up in the experience - or if her ability to feel is finally returning.

    Jennifer says: "Charlotte talks to herself way too much!"
    "A fun return to Austenland"

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this return to Austenland, with some of the characters from the original but plenty of new ones to keep it interesting. I liked how this book was a mystery. It made for a fun sequel.

    By sixth grade, Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. They know where it's safe to go, like the local grocery store, and they know whom to avoid, like the crazy guy on the corner.

    But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a new kid for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The apartment key that Miranda's mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. And then Miranda finds a mysterious note.

    Brianna says: "Excellent intrigue story"
    "Good story about friendship"

    Where does When You Reach Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was probably one of my favorite audiobooks that I have listened to. It was a pleasant read that had fun, memorable features, like the references to A Wrinkle in Time and the $20,000 Pyramid section headings. The characters were real people with fun quirks. I liked Richard's cheesy jokes.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Miranda. I enjoyed seeing the story through her eyes and being part of the moments when she learned about others and gained empathy and greater understanding about them. She was easy to relate to.


    What about Cynthia Holloway’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was pleasant and easy to listen to. She varied her voice well for the different characters; I could easily sense the age differences between the adults and kids in the story.


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

    I enjoyed the part during the assembly when Miranda realized that she was being selfish trying to keep Annemarie to herself instead of also being friends with Julia. I also like when helps Alice out by announcing that she has to go the bathroom. It was a funny, touching moment.
