Children Ages 8+ • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Magic, mystery, and history meet when the old-fashioned spectacles Winna's grandfather gives her grant wishes. Narrator Joniece Abbott-Pratt depicts Winna's youth with a bright voice. Her slightly hesitant delivery is central to Winna's tone of intelligence tempered by having to be polite to a world of fools. Winna has enough worries with her mom being sick in the hospital and keeping her little sister in line while they stay with their grandparents. Now she has to team up with her pugnacious cousin to find a long-lost relative before a curse kills her mother. Abbott-Pratt fills the 1960s small-town setting with vibrant characters, accents, and tender emotion. There is nothing dated about the lessons this audiobook teaches about racism and trauma.
