Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sisi Aisha Johnson

Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Sisi Aisha Johnson embodies all the joy and light of young Ryan Hart in this instant classic for middle-grade listeners. Ryan tries hard to be the leader her parents named her to be, but her competitive streak keeps getting in the way--whether she's racing at recess or swimming at a slumber party even though it will ruin the hairstyle her grandmother spent so much time on. Despite struggles with a new house, money being tight, and an annoying older brother, Ryan finds a way to shine. Johnson gives each endearing family member and friend a distinctive, realistic voice that complements the character. But it's the boundless energy and compassion she gives Ryan that steal the show.
