    "Outstanding Performance for an Outstanding Story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Walk Me Home the most enjoyable?

    There were many aspects of this book that I found so enjoyable! Catherine Ryan Hyde's engaging writing meshed so well with narrator Cristina Panfilio voice and performance that I could not wait to listen to this book at every chance I got.

    Panfilio's presentation of this book was so wonderful that I searched for other audiobooks narrated by her, something I've NEVER done. Her performance also prompted me to write this review, something else I've never done. Excellent pairing of book and narrator!

    The story itself is the wonderful, character-driven tale of Carly and her journey in becoming a well-adjusted young lady after the sudden death of her mother. Outstanding book. Outstanding audiobook.

    Highly recommended.

    "Pretty Good Listen"

    After listening to Take Me With You by this author, perhaps my expectations were a little too high. This was a really good listening experience but I found way too much repetition in this book. Not too mention that I found nothing at all compelling about the flashback sequences that occurred prior to the sisters taking it on the run.
    I found Jen extremely likable; as for Carly, it took me most of the book to get Carly. For much of the book I found that her single minded pursuit of her terribly unrealistic goal unable to get behind. The irony of her believing that she was protecting her sister by taking them back to her deceased mother's ex-boyfriend showed her level of single mindedness along with a high level of immaturity. The author's American Indian tribal creation was a nice twist to this YA novel and all of the characters from the tribe were likable without becoming caricatures instead of characters. Carly's great travel adventure leading to the book's climax was an excellent addition to the narrative.
    I'm hoping that since this book was a 2013 release and Take Me With You was 2014 it indicates an upward curve in the quality of her work. This was a very nice audio; a solid 3.9 to 4.1 and I can recommend it with a few reservations but it's not Take Me With You.
