I really loved this story and the cast of funny, inspiring, diverse characters! I would highly recommend. And the narrator was simply great! Add this to your Audible wish list!

the narrator "made" the book

I enjoyed the book very much, but I think the narrator was perfect for it. Each character had their own voice, and the inflections were so good that I could easily picture the person speaking. I would highly recommend this one.

graceful try

Thought this book was fun and interesting but suddenly fell short at the end when things were beginning to evolve. Perhaps there will be a sequel or "the rest of the story."
