Children Ages 10+ • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Almarie Guerra excels at finding the perfect tween voice in this debut novel. Spending the summer with her ailing grandfather is not Carol’s idea of an ideal plan before the start of middle school. But as she hears the tales he weaves, she begins to wonder how much of his magical stories is due to his dementia and how much is actually the hidden truth about her family. Guerra navigates the emotional charge of Carol's relationship with her grandfather, which starts off rocky but becomes a tender friendship. As Carol matures and changes, Guerra voices her growth with understanding and gentleness. A richly emotional audiobook filled with tenderness and the love of family.
