"This excellent recording will bring new fans to a book that has become a YA classic." (School Library Journal)
Excellent story with high level of interest for teenagers. Strong heroic character must overcome the facades put in place by his family because they refuse to see the truth about his evil older brother. Ironically, the main character is legally blind but sees so much more than those around him who choose to be blind. This story reads almost like a science fiction but is realistic fiction with a very satisfying conclusion.
Like many of you probably, Audible has become my best friend. I'm a huge fan of paranormal fantasies and mysteries.
At first at thought it was interesting, then things started to get a little boring in the middle. But I thought it was wonderful in the end. I like the whole plot, the whole story. Loved it.
It was a very good book that you can reflect upon as a person. It was very exciting once you got passed the first chapter which was not nearly as intriguing as the remainder of the book
I would recommend this book to anyone. It's a fun book that doesn't drag, but doesn't rush important character development either.
Everything! The story is told in Paul's point of view in an extremely believable way.
This book just builds up so well on it's own, but I love when Paul is talking about the soccer games. I've never played or even watched a full game of soccer, but the author paints the picture, and explains it so well that I fell in love with the game.
it was an easy read for the kids but listening let them use their imagination
yes, our family did driving to Loretta Lynn's in Tennessee
