Kiff VandenHeuvel's enthusiastic delivery heightens this middle-grade coming-of-age adventure. When Philadelphia's bridges appear to be under attack from monsters, three young friends band together, forming The Midnight Brigade to investigate. Carl, Teddy, and Bee are inherently impacted by their parents' vocations and choices; they are the children of a new restaurateur, a dentist, a food critic, and a school principal. In Borba's funny, mysterious story, beings of all ages and species are given dimension, motives, and refreshing humanity. VandenHeuvel's bold portrayals add depth and further endear Borba's characters to listeners. With deft pacing, VandenHeuvel illuminates the heart and humor in this profound story of growth, friendship, and fighting for what matters most.
