Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Linnae | 2/13/2014

    " Perkins makes the improbable seem totally reasonable, as Ry gets lost--sort of: he knows where he is, he just doesn't know where anyone else in his family is...or how to get back home again--and found, by a kind stranger. Together they go on a road trip to take Ry home, which turns into a road/plane/boat trip to find his parents, which could either end up just perfectly, or very very badly. Depending on timing, tides, and other finicky points. Good times. "

    " this book had realistic characters and a great plot line, but it just didn't come to life for me. the narating was pretty lax and didn't describe much to me. i guess i just didn't like lynne rae perkins' style and i wish i could have enjoyed the book more. "

    " I just couldn't get into it, and I don't know why. Not the right time, maybe. "

    " I remembered LOVING Criss Cross but not hearing much about this one before I started it. I listened to this, and it took awhile to figure out where the different parts of the story were going, but once I did I ended up liking it. I laughed out loud a lot, loved the characters and enjoyed where it took me. "
