Reviews

nice little mystery, better for kids

(4 stars)

the readers did a great job. the story is not a mystery exactly, because there are not really any clues to follow and figure out. but the characters and there actions are what you are left figuring out (who is this person, where did they come from, why do they care so much about that). the mystery of why marys grandfather is on the run is resolved. but its just such a light simple book that i think it would interest Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys readers more than adult fans.

(5 stars)

This is one of the most fun books I've listened to so far. A mystery from a school girls point of view. Her love for her grandfather and his for her is very touching. Excellent reading by all actors. Bub is priceless

great book

(5 stars)

For, probably, a low budget production, it was superb. Great actors and reading.
