Alexa, the plucky heroine of this new fantasy series, has a bright curiosity that allows her to imagine life outside the confines of her walled town. The book hits its stride and Aasne Vigesaa shows her versatility for character voices when Alexa tunnels outside and speaks with the animals of the forest. Despite the precision of Vigesaa's narration, listeners may find themselves confused at the climax of the story. The lay of the land and the path of the walls play a crucial role in the conclusion, and without the map that is included the book young readers may have a hard time visualizing the geography that is essential to the plot.
