Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries series is a sure bet for tween girls who like funny stories and Anne Hathaway brings the audiobooks to life with her expert narration. I was laughing out loud as I was listening to this (and the first two books in the series).
This is an exciting story that, for me, overcame a so-so narrator. The middle is a bit slow, but the twists and turns at the end more than make up for it. I didn't care for Charlie McWade as the voice of Sage. He tried valiantly to voice the characters, but accents sometimes slipped a bit and I couldn't tell any of the three boys apart. I'll be reading the second book in print.
Bernadette Dunne is well-matched to this story of a strong woman doing what she can to help the women of Afghanistan. Dunne reads with a strong, clear, no-nonsense voice, which is just how I imagine Debbie Rodriguez to be from her story. The first person format lends itself nicely to audio and I enjoyed stepping inside Debbie's world behind the veil as she embraced Afghanistan and its women.
