Publisher's Summary

Newbery Medal winner Paul Fleischman writes a profoundly moving story of connectedness and the journey of a young soul to self-discovery. Told through the voices of five characters and narrated by age-appropriate actors, Whirligig compels the listener with its lesson on how our actions can impact the lives of others - even years later. A stunningly authentic listening experience.

Fabulous

This audio book was quite interesting in a good way . It started out as a book that I was being forced to read for a class but turned out as one that I deeply enjoyed and will read/listen to again. Not to Mention the different voice actors that maid the experience truly extraordinary. Decently would recommend!

Not what I was expecting.

I bought this audio under the impression it would be more than 20 min. I only had access to Chapter 1. Disappointed.
