Love, Ruby Lavender Audiobook

Love, Ruby Lavender

When Ruby’s grandmother, Miss Eula goes to visit her new grandbaby in Hawaii, Ruby is sure that she will have a lonely, empty, horrible summer without her in boring old Halleluia, Mississippi. What happens instead? She makes a new friend, saves the school play, writes plenty of letters to her favorite (and only) grandmother...and finally learns to stop blaming herself for her grandfather’s death. Not too bad, for a nine-year-old.

    "A great read for adolecents to young adults"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I highly recommend this lighthearted story that keeps you engaged until the end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ruby is the star and my favorite character because she reminds me of myself at that age. Ruby and I both believe injustice is not to be tolerated, therefore, we are moved to action.


    What about Judith Ivey’s performance did you like?

    Ivey's performance was well paced and gives us a shining example of inflection and fluency for struggling readers to immulate.


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

    This story made me laugh out loud, again and again, it's a fun read and even more fun as performed by Judith Ivey.


    Any additional comments?

    Love, Ruby Lavender does not take a lot of time to finish, I read the book in approx. two hours. Using Audible, tweens and teens can easily pause and pick-up where they left off, but I doubt they will stop listening until the very end.
