Combining forces, four narrators will make listeners laugh and cry in rapid sequence. Spunky and determined, Jess Thomas struggles to make ends meet cleaning houses, working at a pub, and making do to feed and clothe her two kids, Tanzie, the math wiz, and Nicky, who's gone Goth, as well as their large, hairy black dog, Norman. When her client, software designer Ed Nicolls, drives Jess and her family to Aberdeen for a maths "olympiad," their lives, and his Audi, will never be the same. The quartet of narrators juggles the characters' perspectives as the crises multiply. Jess's optimism makes listeners smile while Tanzie's upbeat approach to numbers is astounding. Grumpy Nicky and sensible Ed add humor to the sad bits. Characters and narrators alike roll with the punches of their lives. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2014]
