    Neglected by her parents, 19-year-old Maya Nidal has grown up in Berkeley with her grandparents. Her grandmother Nini is a force of nature, a woman whose formidable strength helped her build a new life after emigrating from Chile in 1973. Popo, Maya's grandfather, is a gentle man whose solid, comforting presence helps calm the turbulence of Maya's adolescence. When Popo dies of cancer, Maya goes completely off the rails, turning to drugs, alcohol, and petty crime in a downward spiral that eventually bottoms out in Las Vegas.

    Natalie says: "Not Allende's Usual Standard"

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

    Already have! its a good story!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Maya's Notebook?

    Vegas, Vegas was crazy Maya doesn't know how lucky she is to not have fallen to bigger pray. I think the moment I would remember is when she retells when she was in a homeless shelter and steals from a lady with a child... she took her last $5 to get a fix.


    Have you listened to any of Maria Cabezas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes, I think she portrayed Mayas character perfectly.


    If you could take any character from Maya's Notebook out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would have loved to meet Maya's popo as she calls him, He was tall dark and handsome He married her grandmother he was an astronomer a professor in uc berkeley, He accepted her grandmothers chilean culture with out giving up his. I love the way the meet, Nidia Visal has bras ball!

    Would you be willing to try another one of Grace Grant’s performances?

    In my opinion Grace Grant did a very good performance yes i would listen to her again.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe this book was rushed... it was annoying some parts repetitive. Its like a sequel to a really good movie then u get disappointed because the story didn't really advanced. The way this book ends its obvious that there will be more books to come. I'm not anxious for them like I had been for this one. I do recomend her other 2 books on this series.

    Would you recommend Mockingjay to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes. Mostly because we all want yo know how the story ends.


    Could you see Mockingjay being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I think that Jennifer Lawrence is doing better jobs in the movies.
