While I didn’t love the narrator, the story is still strong enough to keep you engaged. I don’t want to give away anything, but what a heartbreaking incident. My son is 9, and I often had a lot of trouble listening to many of the scenarios. Happy ending though, which is nice.

This was the line that did it. I was entranced. Russell is giving us priceless information, and we need to be ready to hear it.
