    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    Rebecca Rothstein Rabinowitz is a plump, sexy chef who has a wonderful husband, a restaurant that's received citywide acclaim, a beautiful baby girl and the mother-in-law from hell. Kelly Day's life looks picture-perfect. But behind the doors, she's struggling to balance work, motherhood, and marriage, while dealing with an unemployed husband who seems content to channel-surf for eight hours a day....

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

    Yes - entertaining and smart about relationships.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kelly - she tried so hard to cover up any sadness or badness.


    Which character – as performed by Johanna Parker – was your favorite?

    All were great. She did wonderfully with the men without making her voice sound strange.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I couldn't wait to keep listening - it was for the road while I drove my friend's moving truck across country. I kept thinking about the things friends do for each other. I laughed a couple of times about Becky's reactions to things.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the narrator and the book. I wish all were this awesome. I didn't think the subject matter was for me but I trust this author to be good. I am oldish and childless so pregnancy and newborns is a little outside my experience but that wasn't really the main subject but part of the conflict for the characters.

    Myra is used to keeping her feet firmly on the ground. She’s got four younger brothers, overworked parents, and a pregnant older sister, and if Myra wasn’t there to take care of everyone, they’d probably fall apart. But when her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, Myra feels like she’s lost her footing. Suddenly she’s doing things she never would have a few months earlier: jumping around in a chicken suit for a part-time job, competing against her ex-boyfriend for a scholarship to study birds in the Galápagos, and falling for a guy who’s encouraging her to leap from her old life... and fly.

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

    Yes. It was an easy listen and I liked the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Girls Don't Fly?

    Loved it when the teacher discovered she had discounted the main character's intelligence.


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

    Never have.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extremes. Just a good story about a girl who discovers things about herself and the people around her.
