Publisher's Summary

Phoebe Marchant isn't your average poor little orphan. In fact, as heiress to her father's fortune, she may be the richest 12-year-old in America.

But life isn't always easy for Phoebe. Along with Poppy's fortune, she's inherited a big problem, Vicki-with-two-i's, the last and luckiest in her long string of stepmothers.

Luckily, Phoebe's a professional when it comes to getting rid of unwanted stepmothers. She's also used to getting her own way. But Vicki comes equipped with her own set of tricks and has a different idea about what it means to be the Girl Who Has Everything. Do this wicked stepmother and her conniving orphan charge have more to learn from each other than they realize?

Award-winning author Jennifer J. Stewart writes seriously funny books for children, including If That Breathes Fire, We're Toast!, which made VOYA's Best Fantasies of the Year List when it debuted; The Girl Who Has Everything; the multiple-state-award nominated Close Encounters of a Third-World Kind; and the Glyph Award-winning picture book The Twelve Days of Christmas in Arizona.

    Story
    "Narration kills the story."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Rerecord it in a proper sound booth. There's hissing and the narrator sounds like the distance form the mic is changing constantly.

    A different narrator might not have made the book such a painful listen either.


    Would you recommend The Girl Who Has Everything to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, I think I would. It's a different and somewhat refreshing take on the rich girl theme. I didn't really care for Vickii but again it's not the typical step-mother cliche found in most books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The main character is supposed to be 12 but she sounds about six. But it's the recording quality thatneeds to improve.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Girl Who Has Everything?

    I don't think I would cut anything. I would have liked to seem some expansion on things though. I mean our main character was at a boarding school and is now being sent to a "normal" (read public) school. This is brushed over in the rush to rach the ending.
