Children Ages 8+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Imani Parks takes the listener on a roller-coaster ride in this moving middle-grade story. Joy is sick of the changes in her life. She doesn't like having to share a room with her little sister now that her family has moved out of their house. She doesn't like the way she can hear her parents fighting all the time in their new apartment. Parks flawlessly captures Joy's youth while giving emotional weight to her palpable tween distress. As Joy makes friends and even starts a dog-walking business, she struggles to balance her independence and responsibilities. Through it all, Parks captures Joy's moments of strength and optimism, which have the listener cheering her on. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
