Publisher's Summary

According to sixteen-year-old Zander Osborne, nowhere is an actual place - and she's just fine there. But her parents insist that she get out of her head - and her home state - and attend Camp Padua, a summer camp for at-risk teens.

Zander does not fit in - or so she thinks. She has only one word for her fellow campers: crazy. In fact, the whole camp population exists somewhere between disaster and diagnosis. There's her cabinmate Cassie, a self-described manic-depressive-bipolar-anorexic. Grover Cleveland (yes, like the president), a cute but confrontational boy who expects to be schizophrenic someday, odds being what they are. And Bek, a charmingly confounding pathological liar.

But amid group "share-apy" sessions and forbidden late-night outings, unlikely friendships form, and as the Michigan summer heats up, the four teens begin to reveal their tragic secrets. Zander finds herself inextricably drawn to Grover's earnest charms, and she begins to wonder if she could be happy. But first she must come completely unraveled to have any hope of putting herself back together again.

    "I recommend this book."

    An easy-to-relate-to group of troubled teens try to figure out who they are and what they want from family, life, friendships, and each other at a summer camp for at-risk teens.

    The narration is great, the characters well developed, and the subject matter is deep, while still being funny, raw, and honest.

    I highly recommend.

    "Good teenager read"

    I found this book to be wonderfully written and the storyline was good from the start. The character development wasn't drawn out and boring as so many are. Even though I am in my forties, I still enjoyed the story. It isn't the best ever, but I thought it to be worth the read. I think young adults and teens will really enjoy this.

    "An Interesting Look at Life"

    The characters were very easy to get invested in. I enjoyed the story. It was a highly engrossing listen and the narrator was extremely effective at dragging you into the world. It was an emotional rollercoaster and a enjoyable ride.

    "Like watching a teenage movie"

    Has something in it, but for an adult as me feels like a little light and easy. Good to kill time while in my one hour commute though.

    Story
    "A Little Juvenile, but still a good Listen"

    We found the content to be slightly juvenile in a sense; however, the meaning of the story was powerful and relatable. I like the narrator of the story. She used different voices for each character and seemed to have interest in the story. I wouldn't listen to the audiobook again, but I would recommend it to anyone who plans to send their kids to camp or therapy. -Brad

    "Great book but title is misleading"

    It's not what I would ever call a romance so I'm not sure why the title would suggest it.. This is 100% a book about friendship and mental illness. It was a great book, just not what I thought I was buying.

    Also Grover is probably my least favorite boy/love interest character I've ever read about... There was nothing about him that made me root for him and Zander to be together but maybe that's just me...

    The book got really good towards the end but there was definitely some dry parts. I wouldn't consider it "young adult" but it's perfect for teenagers especially those suffering with a variety of mental illnesses

    Story
    "A must read for teens and young adults"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to anyone that has tween or teen children. It illustrates the anguish of growing up and lets them know that they are not alone in their suffering. It lets them know that even if people look different, come from different backgrounds, the anxiety is still the same.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland?

    The attempted suicide.


    Have you listened to any of Caitlin Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time, I would have listen all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book for young women especially.

    Story
    "At first I thought I wasn't going to like it, but"

    At first I thought I wasn't going to like it, but I ended up loving it. At the beginning I thought this is going to be some teen book and I'll be bored. The character Cassie being introduced right away kept me listening waiting for someone to tell her off. I listened to the while book and finally I got to hear the end to the Cassie. She got what she and many other kids in her position REALLY deserve. I can't tell you what it is though, you've got to read/listen to it.
