Girls Don't Fly | [Kristen Chandler]

Girls Don't Fly

Myra is used to keeping her feet firmly on the ground. She’s got four younger brothers, overworked parents, and a pregnant older sister, and if Myra wasn’t there to take care of everyone, they’d probably fall apart. But when her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, Myra feels like she’s lost her footing. Suddenly she’s doing things she never would have a few months earlier: jumping around in a chicken suit for a part-time job, competing against her ex-boyfriend for a scholarship to study birds in the Galápagos, and falling for a guy who’s encouraging her to leap from her old life... and fly.

    "cute story, good for a lazy afternoon"

    I thought this was a feel good cute story. One that makes you root for the main character and feel good afterwards.

    Story
    "Enjoyed this a lot!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It was an easy listen and I liked the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Girls Don't Fly?

    Loved it when the teacher discovered she had discounted the main character's intelligence.


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never have.


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

    No extremes. Just a good story about a girl who discovers things about herself and the people around her.

    "Cute Story"
    What made the experience of listening to Girls Don't Fly the most enjoyable?

    it wasn't long and the performance was good


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Girls Don't Fly?

    hmmm .. maybe the scene where Melissa asks Myra not to leave her while she is delivering the baby , it gave me the feeling of how important she is in the family


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    her speed in the reading was good , but she needs to have more voices for the characters


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the scene when Melissa came to pick up Myra though she shouldn't drive


    Any additional comments?

    it was a light cute story good for a weekend :)
