“Bindy’s unforgettable, earnest, hilariously high-strung voice … will capture and hold eager readers.” (Booklist)
I found it hard to start with. A bit disjoined and difficult to like. That eventually worked in the end because you eventually start to care about Bindy… well the rest of what I would say would be spoilers so I say an enjoyable listen with an interest capturing ending.
The moment you figure out that there is more going on in this story than you realized at first.
I loved the voice for Bindy but I enjoyed the reading of the other characters done with a different voice. It really helped keep the ending suspenseful and believable.
Can't tell it would spoil the story for the next Listener.
