Teen superhero but narrator bombs

This is your basic teen-age superhero who feels alone, fights evil, and makes friends. Very Buffy, but not as well written. Still, for what it is, many would find it enjoyable. I listened to the end, so it isn't that bad. Just stale and cliched and sometimes repetitive in language. But the narrator! She makes it so much worse than it had to be. Perhaps I should blame the producer or director. But how many times does someone have to mispronounce a word until someone yells, "Cut!" From ingenue to progress to familiarity, and more and more, this person doesn't know how to pronounce a good many words, and no one stopped her from mispronouncing them. It became a game to write it down when a new word was wrong. I hit about a dozen words. I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks; I know that a stumble or a mispronounce can happen. But this is truly excessive and distracting. Also, she lacks in emotional range. I know she's a working narrator, with 4 books on Audible at the time of this writing, but I will avoid any book Mae Middleton is narrating in the future. Just to give the book a fair chance.
