    "Moving, disturbing, and humorous"

    Please, don't ignore Vera. She has some amazing things to say. Wonderfully read by Lynde Houck (and a couple others not credited by audible - Mark Deakins, Ryan Gesell, and Arthur Morey). These multiple narrators are necessary because they help with some of the unusual formatting aspects of the print book. Anyway, they all do a fabulous job. The story won a Printz Honor, easy to see why. I have a soft spot for female characters standing on the outskirts of high school society - not the outcast, just the ignored. Vera takes her "status" and thrives. Her father is a great dad, if a little misled to the idea that he can help Vera avoid all the mistakes teenagers make. That's part of life and Vera knows this whole-heartedly! You will ache with her for her dead ex-best friend, Charlie. Learning their story is what this book is all about. A must read.

    "A very good contemporary"

    A very good contemporary (and extremely character driven). I can totally understand why some people might think it's a bit odd. If you're a hardcore contemp reader, I highly recommend.

    There was more than just Lynde Houck for the voice actors and I liked that it was more than just her!

    Story
    "Not my cup of tea"
    What disappointed you about Please Ignore Vera Dietz?

    There was an extreme amount of cussing. It was also a pretty depressing story line dealing with a lot of heavy topics.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Possibly Paper Towns by John Greene


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I suppose.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I think that there was some good to the story. I think that the main character had the potential to rise above her circumstances.
