Audible Editor Reviews

Performer Edwina Wren lends credence to this coming-of-age tale, as she deftly captures the teenage sensibilities of the story’s 18-year-old protagonist, Liza: confident, sarcastic, and self-assuredly hip, but tempered by youthful angst and naivety in the face of familial strife and an uncertain future. Listeners will follow Liza from Australia to Greece, where she’s reunited with her ailing grandmother, Ara. The reunion isn’t altogether comfortable, as Ara reveals family secrets and encroaches on Liza’s personal space. Heading into their final year of school, Liza and her cousin Aliki struggle to cope with the responsibilities of young adulthood, even as family secrets from their childhood remain unresolved. Throughout, Wren brims with fresh-faced wonder, defiant rambunctiousness, and playful good humor.

Publisher's Summary

Here's a captivating audiobook that will appeal to teenage and adult listeners alike. Aliki and Liza are friends as well as cousins. They share everything - friends, ideas, dreams and school - and they're more like sisters than anything else. When Liza flies to Greece with her mother to bring her grandmother (Yiayia) home to Five Dock, everything changes forever. Secrets that have long been hidden are dragged into the light of day, Aliki's family is on the move, and pieces of the puzzle are thrown up in the air and settle to form a new picture. Both girls find new directions in their lives and have to reassess the bonds that hold them together.

If you liked Looking for Alibrandi, you'll love Aliki Says, from the acclaimed author of Willow Tree and Olive, winner of the 2001 CBCA Book of the Year for Older Readers.
