Finally, Rory is turning 12, and all the things her parents have been telling her she needs to wait until she’s 12 to do are hers to start checking off her list. Kathleen McInerney captures all of Rory’s angst and humor as well as the personalities of her overprotective parents, her 3-year-old brother, and her friends. Rory’s stream-of-consciousness thoughts when she finally gets to drink coffee and ends up in a caffeine-induced haze are particularly funny. Fortunately for the listener but unfortunately for Rory, accomplishing the rest of the things on her to-do list ends up with similarly disastrous results. Her angst, frustration, humiliation, and excitement will delight both young listeners and their parents. Each voice in the story is distinct and lends a rich fullness to the listening experience.
