"Get off the bus!" shouts narrator Emily Janice Card in the voice of 9-year-old middle child Piper Reed. It takes a lot to get Piper down. She's moved across the country, leaving behind the Gypsy Club, whose members joined her in chorusing "Get off the bus!", an expression they mean to spread all over the world. Card voices Piper's optimistic views of the advantages she can gain from having dyslexia, as well as her frustrations with her younger and older sisters. Piper's got a lot of dimension for the heroine of a short audio, and Card shows all of it. We see her spunky determination, upbeat mood when her father leaves on assignment, and the love she has for her family. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
