Four narrators bring to life an unusual rural school in Vermont. When legendary prankster Paulie Fink doesn't return for seventh grade, his classmates miss him so much that they hold a contest to name the next great Paulie Fink. The new girl, Caitlyn, acts as organizer and judge. Narrating from Caitlyn's perspective, Cassandra Morris engagingly carries most of the performance, giving Caitlyn a cynical tone as she interviews her classmates. We hear the other kids' voices as they tell their stories about the infamous Paulie, and teachers chime in, too. Most notable is Zach Villa's delivery of Diego's hyperventilating laughter as he recounts a particularly funny escapade. A relatable story with wit and heart, this audiobook will make listeners think about philosophical questions as well as laugh. S.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
