Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Natalie Lloyd

Children Ages 8+ • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Fans of Natalie Lloyd who have loved the written voice of her magical novels for years have a treat in store with her debut as narrator. Her warm Southern voice perfectly fits 11-year-old Olive, a character with whom she shares the disability of brittle bones and many other growing-up experiences. Lloyd makes clear homeschooled Olive's deep wish to attend public middle school, find a BFF, and stop being seen as fragile. Being familiar with her own marvelous wordplay, Lloyd sets a flowing pace while illuminating the wonderful merger of magic and realism that her fans love. As Olive and others hunt for the hummingbird that will grant their cherished wishes, Lloyd's delivery is just right. S.W.
