female narrator was fantastic

i often don't like narrators' portrayal of the voices of other-gendered characters..

this narrator does a great job of differentiating different characters without losing the flow of narration

Laurenston has a particular writing style. A grammar snob will likely have a hard time listening.

For long time fans, though, this is a nice start to a new series with cameos from some familiar characters.

I was excited to see a new narrator in the lineup... and her voice/narration is pleasant/fine... except when she attempts to differentiate voices/characters. These characterizations were annoying and distracting to the extreme.

And her accents are awful, and several of them are not true to the backstory (for example: Bo was raised in Maine.... so why the Russian accent? and Ric is from an extremely upper class background, so using a lower class "new yorker" accent for him does not match at all)

I noticed the next book in the series has another new narrator and I am grateful for that, as I would not have moved forward in the series if they had stuck with this same narrator.

This book and The Connected Child (Purvis) are my top 2 recommendations for foster and adoptive parents. (I'm a fost/adopt social worker.) We consistently get feedback about how helpful they are to the parents. Easy to read. Helpful to read over and over because you understand more/differently each time.

Raised by a veteran suffering with PTSD some of the topic/perspective hit "home" with my, but the MC was unique and had an interesting perspective.

Could function as "bibliotherapy" for many teens struggling with parental Mental Health/substance abuse issues.

Read once a long time ago,
went back looking for it again and it did not disappoint on second read (which says a lot for genre, especially as I am not in main/target audience as I am not a teen/YA).

THANK YOU, Ms.Daniels!
Will be using the opening sequence in training for Foster Parents to help them start to understand some kids' internal dialogue.

GREAT MC.
Strong writing.

strong MC, interesting world
interesting take on male/female romantic relationship and intersectionality in re: female friendship, both era-appropriate and feminist
not really sure why it's not 5 stars for me... but there's something....
