Absolutely love this book and the narrator was great and I don't say that for many narrators I'm very picky and a harsh critic for the books I listen to. My imagination came easy with the story the narrator, this will be a repeat listen for me.

Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

If I could give the narrator no stars I would she was very slow monotone didn't sound like she was actually enjoying doing the story. I've listened to over 200 books and this is the first time that I have ever put anything in remarks besides the ratings. she was a real disappointment.

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

The narrator was very bland, story very boring it didn't keep me interested. I listen to the book because I made the purchase but I'm so happy that it's over and I will not continue to listen to the series. I usually don't leave comments but I had to on this one.

I would have skipped this book because of the narrator if I wouldn't miss much but I love this series and Gigi did not do it for me I wanted to stop listening after the first five minutes. I wish I could have gave her performance no Stars.
