Publisher's Summary

Will's life had always been normal. Normal school, normal friends, normal small town. But he had always thought that his parents might be a bit abnormal. Little does he know that they have been hiding a secret from him his entire life. Not only are they not normal, they're not even from Earth. And when Will is suddenly given a chance to attend the Bridgeworld Academy, his parents' alma mater in space, he finds out just how little he knew.

Small town, small world, great listen!

What a great way to spend 11 hrs! I started following the narrator on FB after listening to his first book, and picked this up as soon as I saw it was out. Really cant go wrong! A really well written and narrated book! It was a clean and fun story too and I was able to listen with my kids easily. Hope book 2 expands on the world a bit and fills some of the gaps.. but that's to be expected in a series... Can't wait for book 2, would really recommend this book.

Awesome for all ages!

Listened to this one straight through with my daughter in 2 halves. This is listed as a children’s title but I could see it in contemporary sci-fi as well. Clean fun and an excellent story for all age ranges. Im playing follow the narrator at this point and wish this guy had more. Now I guess I’ll play follow the author with mr. Mcbee.

A Great Sci Fi Listen for All Ages

I was not sure what age category to put this sci-fi story into. However, I feel it can really be enjoyed by any age. It is heavy with teenage themes, but it is clean enough that a parent could listen to it with their kid. I am almost 30 and found this story enjoyable and I liked the characters. There was adventure and humour worked throughout the entire book. The world was unique and McBee did a great job of making sure all of the customs, foods, etc were well explained and understood. My only "complaint" was I found the ending wrapped up a little quicker then I would have liked.

KC Johnston did a great job with the narration as well. Voices were clear and had a voice that was easy to listen to.

I received a copy of this book at my request, and I have voluntarily left this review.

Enjoyable listen, recommend for teens...

Bridgeworld, Volume 1 by Travis McBee and narrated by KC Johnston, is a good listen and step into Sci-Fi for the younger folks. Despite being well past my teen years, I enjoyed this listen and wish this would have been around when I was growing up. I would recommend this book to teens in middle school.

What’s it about? A teen finds out he isn’t from Earth and ends up entering Bridgeworld Academy. It contains the typical teenage problems- relationships, sports, fitting in, jealousy, clothing, prom, birthdays, and like stuff. And if the summary, book cover, or my review didn’t make it clear- Outer space. Would like to note the book is rather descriptive (a good thing). There are underlying themes throughout (acceptance being one).

The narrator, KC Johnston, was once again fantastic! This is his second book (or so I believe it is) and he helps make the book what it is. KC is one of two narrators I’m following to see where they go. He has a steady, soothing voice. Would recommend giving him a listen.

Would I recommend? Yes. Would I listen to the next in the series? Yes, while it’s made for a younger audience, I find KC’s narrations are a must listen.

Parental advisory/trigger warnings: Overall it is a fairly clean book- beware spoilers are kept to a minimum here….stop now if you do not want any...

.
I do not recall any swearing. Kisses between boyfriend and girlfriend multiple times (not described in detail). One boy attacks another during a game, but the attacker get his arm broken. Relationships between boyfriends and girlfriends (very PG from what I recall). Aliens, adults drinking alcohol, competition between two schools & the one school has a history of pranks gone wrong. Bathroom bullying by two girls from the other school at sports game. Bullying throughout the book between students. Kidnapping. One student gets kicked when he is unconscious (he is knocked out first) by another student.

*I won a copy of this book. Probably don’t need to write this but here it is.

Excellent Story!

This was a fun story to listen to. The author and narrator both did a wonderful job. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

An enjoyable tale

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The tale was interesting and I enjoyed KC Johnston's narration. I believe Will handled the whole situation a lot better than I would have at his age! And he definitely finds girlfriends faster than I did at that age too!

Overall, an enjoyable book.

Bridgeworld

The audio book is really fast paced so you don't have time to stop and think until the end. The ending was a bit rushed in my opinion

Calling Gary Stu

Will, our main character, is a male version of a Mary Sue. He has no flaws and anything bad that happens is never his fault. As an example, Will's football team, for which he is the quarterback, loses "The Big Game". the High School coach for the team that Will is planning on joining, congratulates Will for his efforts and says "You'll make a great receiver". Will's response? "Thanks coach but I'm not a receiver, I'm the quarterback." Later in the same chapter, Will's girlfriend turns on him for losing the game. I might have cared more but the relationship between the pair came off as shallow from the beginning.

I like the premise, I could probably come to like most of the characters but everything will accomplishes feels completley unearned. I don't think I'll be continuing this series.
