    Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg’s strange talent for seeing the paths of people’s pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him - secrets about Rigg’s own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

    "Great!"
    Overall

    This is the 2nd OSC book I've listened to. As with the other, Pathfinder is challenging and keeps you thinking! I didn't give it 5 stars because it does drag at times, but my 11 year old son and I loved listening to it and talking about it and making guess all along the journey!

    Samantha Kingston has it all: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last. Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact.

    Based on the reviews I kept waiting for it to get better, but I had a hard time loving this whiny, emotionally stunted girl. I like that she eventually figured it out, but why did it take so long?

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Overall

    I know I'm going against the majority here, but I wasn't riveted like many others were. I enjoyed the concept and narration, but there didn't seem to be a single well-defined conflict that kept the action moving along. My 10 year old and I listened faithfully on our commute at first, but found ourselves drifting at times. Sometimes we even turned it off in favor of music.
