This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

NO ONE!!!!

Has The One & Only turned you off from other books in this genre?

I have loved all other books by Emily Giffin.. I was super excited about this new book. It was truly awful. I tried my best to like it. I listened as long as I possibly could. The main character was immature and her (what I can only describe as disburbing) 'relationship' with her best friends DAD was just a train wreck!!!

What didn’t you like about Sofia Willingham’s performance?

I loved her voice and thought she did a great job for such an awful book.

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

NONE.
It was surrounded with a lot of football talk. I was raised in a very prominent football town so I was able to accept that. The rest of the story was ridiculous and just AWFUL. I have no other words.
I hate I wasted a credit.
I have purchased ALL the other books by EGiffin and enjoyed them.

Any additional comments?

DO NOT WASTE YOUR CREDIT.

If you could sum up The Penny in three words, what would they be?

I really enjoyed this book. I can say with confidence that I will never see a penny on the ground and not be reminded of this story.
Loved it.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the characters. Very believable. The struggle with faith and how the tragedy was overcome but not in 'fairytale' fashion

Have you listened to any of Emily Janice Card’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A pennies worth of faith
