My Henry is a coming of age story told by the main character Gracie Lemaras.
It begins in the summer before Gracie will be starting high school, and she is very nervous about it. To make matters worse, her best friend Michie is off spending the summer with her father and Gracie is left all alone. However, her loneliness is short-lived when she meets Henry and they set out on an adventure that Gracie will never forget.

The storyline was right up my alley of what I enjoy in both books and movies. Fantasy, magic, the possibilities of what if's, love, a touch of reality. This book had a touch of all of them.
That's a toss up between Gracie and Henry. On one hand I loved Henry and who his character was, but on the other hand I was envious of Gracie for getting a glimpse into a world I want to be in so I got to share that with her.
This was my 1st experience with both an audio book and with listening to Dora. At first I had a little bit of a hard time and lost concentration a few times (I'm use to reading and bringing the story to life in my own mind with my own voice) but before I knew I it got easier to listen while doing other things online. Her voice was very calming, kept my attention and I quickly found the experience very enjoyable. I was able to do other things while being sweep away into the story and actually picturing the events. THAT'S when you know I love a book, if I'm living it, and she took me on that journey.
Yes the ending. I will not type any spoilers for the ending here but I will say I yelled NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO at the ending that it was over and would like BOOK TWO PLEASE! I'd like to see that story continue and take me further.
Thank you for the fun and excitement of a good book!
yes , it was a well written story !
the way Henry can change from horse, to dolphin , to human, that is cool !!
When Henry did return to the stream just as Gracie was thinking she would never see him again !
this is one book that i will recommend to friends with children as a very good story to listen to together in a family setting , both young and old alike will surly love "My Henry" !!! it is very interesting and imaginative !!!
I will! I love the storyline and will listen again to pick up on details that I may have missed.
Mishy! The best friend we all wish that we had in high school. I loved how she was there for Grace in every way possible.
This was my first experience listening to this narrator. I very much enjoyed the emotion she added to each character.
I listened to the story in one setting and enjoyed it very much.
Yes. As a matter of fact I am going to get a copy for my nephew who loves to listen to books.
I love the fairy tale charm.
Dora does a great job and brings a lot of enthusiasm to these characters which works wonderfully in this fantasy setting.
It is a charming story that is great for both YA and adult. I think there is something here for just about everyone to enjoy.

Yes! With the audio version I am free to be transported in a magical realm and still able to continue whatever I am working on. Instead of vacuuming the carpet today I was striding alongside Henry and Gracie as they traveled.
Without giving anything away, all I can really say is that this story needs a sequel!
