Then strange things start happening. A bully brushed aside. A car diverted from smashing into a young girl. Is it coincidence or is Benjamin making them happen?
Follow Benjamin as he discovers his unique 'gift' while dealing with the complexities of junior high, friends, bullies, camp and strange visitors.

this was a great storyline in the book I really enjoyed it, BUT I did not like the narrator he had a monotone voice and kept trying to put me to sleep but like I said the story itself was great 👍.
The Audio was broken, monotone, and sounded like it was being read by a robot :( I couldn't get into the story so I can't say whether it is good or not :(
2 things: Benjamin's personality, and the fact that a bully gets transformed into a good kid!
Whenever the narrator was reading anything except actual quotes, his delivery was flat, ominous and robotic. It was almost as if each word was recorded separately and then just spliced together. We mostly got used to it by the end, but it was very distracting.
The narrator's conversational performance (voices, inflection, etc) was wonderful. But anything that wasn't actual speaking parts for the characters was so flatly done. He could be a GREAT narrator, but needs some coaching.
I am an energetic wife, mother and grandmother with a busy life and tired eyes. I love being able to listen to books while doing chores, etc.
Entire thing read with a very careful monotone. I listened to the first chapter and then skipped about halfway through. I cannot tolerate the narration
