Natasha Blok visits her town's magical tree, which grants girls three wishes after their thirteenth birthday. Narrator Brittany Pressley's youthful-sounding pitch provides an immediate connection between the listener and Natasha, who is coping with the many pains of adolescence, especially her first crush and her changing relationships with her two younger sisters. Pressley infuses her performance with spunk and personality, creating distinctive voices for the varied characters and capturing the full range of teenage emotions. Although this first installment in a planned trilogy about the Blok sisters includes a large dose of magical realism, the contemporary story also explores everyday issues. Pressley's expressive narration will engage the entire family. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2016]
