Yes I will listen again .
Nobody in particular. All the characters are integral part of the story including the evil aunt.
All in all I like the story with its ups and downs. Good job to the writer and narrator.
Yes! Audiobooks are always better than print books. Audiobooks off things like accents, proper pronunciations and loads of excitement in all the right places! Listening to an audiobook is like listening to a movie! it rocks!!!
Andy is my favorite character. I liked almost all the people in the book, but it was Andy who made the story! Andy saved Corey and made a new life for her. Andy turned everyday into an adventure. It was Andy who had all the friends to help Corey & it was Andy who took Corey to Angelique & changed Corey's life forever! Andy also taught Corey to love everyone & be kind & generous even if you have next to nothing!
I don't think I have listened to this narrator before. I enjoyed his reading very much.
When Andy died, I was floored. All I could think was "Oh no!" . Poor Corey girl as Andy would say.
I truly enjoyed listening to this book! This is one unforgettable read that I will remember for some time!Kudos to the Author Sandra Farris for doing an outstanding job writing this book. I felt it all the way to my heart! Steven Cooper, the narrator, you did one hell of a fine job narrating this tale! I loved Andy's scratchy voice!!! I loved all the voices.

A easy to follow and emotional story with plenty of visual description to make you feel you are part of the story.
flawlessly read and fit well with each of the multiple characters in the book
The passing of one of the main characters
Steven Cooper managed to put a voice to every character in this book - even to the women folk, which is not easy to do, while still able to read the story with ease.
Corey was her own hero, who managed to escape an impossible situation of abuse, and by fate, met people along the way who not only cared for her, but who became life-long friends. Having once lived a good life, then as a Hobo, once she found stability, she never forgot to be human to those less fortunate. Eventually, she learned to forgive her abuser, and found happiness.
Being that there are several different men characters, Steven was able to somehow summon the voices of each one without any hesitation. This made each character come to life, and helped paint a clearer picture of how each person looked. Steven even had voices for the women folk. Not an easy thing to do!
