Publisher's Summary

A Spillworthy is an idea so good, it has to be shared and ten-year-old Ulysses Finch doesn't let being homeless get in his way. He scrawls his best thoughts on pizza boxes, releases them into the wild, and relishes every response. After moving to Idaho, Ulysses finds Gem Rost's journal and dives into reading it. She must be a kindred spirit! Or is she?

    "Don't Miss This Treasure"
    What did you love best about Spillworthy?

    The award winning book by Johanna Harness is written in a clever style, one which Mark Blowers both honors and lifts into a beautiful rendition. He brings the many characters to life. I enjoyed it tremendously and give it a high recommendation.Don't miss this treasure of an audiobook. It may be written for a younger audience, but I was transfixed by it. Truly a story for all ages.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The only time I got up while listening to this book was to get another drink and a snack.

    "Excellent Story with Amazing Narrator!!!"

    Spillworthy is a fascinating story with just enough twists to keep one on the edge of one's seat. Unlike some books, it doesn't try to be too clever, which more often than not leads to plot or character confusion. In Spillworthy, the reader knows and understands enough to feel a connection to the book and its characters without becoming bored by overly predictable story arcs.

    While the author has created highly relatable characters, narrator Mark Blowers, once again, demonstrates his remarkable ability to understand the innermost makeup of each character. Mr. Blower's narration takes the reader on a magnificent journey where the depth of each character is gently and slowly exposed as though he were carefully removing the petals of a rose, one at a time, until the secret core was revealed. His voice, alone, turns the words on the pages into a glorious mental movie. To take a story written as distinct, staccato journal entries and create a vivid and seamless stream of activity and emotions is but a part of the genius of Mr. Blowers. While the book was written for teenage audiences, I would very highly recommend that adults listen to the brilliant interpretation by narrator Mark Blowers.
