The Forbidden Library by Django Wexler 384 pages
I listened to this one and I wonder if that was the problem. I really didn't care for the reader. She sounded like she was 8 years old, but the book was not told first person and the main character was 12. Furthermore, I don't think she understands how periods work when found so deliberately at the end of a sentence. I found myself thinking she'd neglected to finish sentences, or was unsure of their meaning the way her inflection rose. It was a huge distraction. So, perhaps the book is better than I'm giving it credit. I will say that regardless of whether Cassandra Morris has won awards for her reading, I will steer clear of anything else she reads. I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to give them a fair shake either.
