You'll Like It Here (Everybody Does) | [Ruth White]

You'll Like It Here (Everybody Does)

While Meggie and David Blue are from another planet, they're a lot like Earth kids, with similar hopes and dreams, and can't wait to grow up. BUT they also have GROSSLY UNIQUE qualities, such as blue streaks in their hair that pop up randomly and language skills that sound like nothing on this planet. The story takes these alien kids, along with their mother and grandfather, by accident, to a far planet in which the society is not only oppressive but hostile to individual freedom. People are kept submissive through drugs and brainwashing. The Blues know this is wrong....

Publisher's Summary

While Meggie and David Blue are from another planet, they're a lot like Earth kids, with similar hopes and dreams, and can't wait to grow up. BUT they also have GROSSLY UNIQUE qualities, such as blue streaks in their hair that pop up randomly and language skills that sound like nothing on this planet. The story takes these alien kids, along with their mother and grandfather, by accident, to a far planet in which the society is not only oppressive but hostile to individual freedom. People are kept submissive through drugs and brainwashing. The Blues, who have spent time in free societies recognize the upside-down-ness of this world. They're almost helpless to do anything, but do what they can, plan their escape, and vow to help others.

From the Hardcover edition.

    "A unique story that I really enjoyed"
    Would you listen to You'll Like It Here (Everybody Does) again? Why?

    Yes- I would like to listen again with my kids.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A great reminder of some of the highs and lows of history. Done in a way that young people could possibly understand and relate to. Light, sometimes fun, sometime serious.


    What about Jesse Bernstein and Becca Battoe ’s performance did you like?

    I initially picked the story because I really like Becca Battoe's previous performances.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to a wide variety of audiobooks, and this one stood out as a hidden gem. I would like to listen again with my kids (9 & 11).
