New York Times best-selling author Gordon Korman harkens back to his No More Dead Dogs days in this stand-alone that takes a tone more serious than you've ever heard from him before. A boy who's been a bully and hanging out with the wrong friends gets a new start after a memory-loss-inducing accident. But can someone really change who he is, or will the old him merely come back over time?

A moving, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the author's own family memoirs, these words belong to Sarah Prine, a woman of spirit and fire who forges a full and remarkable existence in a harsh, unfamiliar frontier. Scrupulously recording her steps down the path Providence has set her upon - from child to determined young adult to loving mother.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The story was beautifully complex, rich and captivating! It is like being a very lucky historical fly on the wall.

Would you be willing to try another one of Donada Peters’s performances?

The sound quality its not iPhone speaker compatible. Many mouth sounds and background noises in the recording have been put together in manner that is very distracting.
