The First by Katherine Applegate. Endling series #2. Unabridged e-audiobook. ~8 hours. Read by Lisa Flanagan. HarperAudio, May, 2019. 9780062911889. (Review of e-audio borrowed from public library.)
Applegate proves that a fast-paced, suspenseful story need not be merely plot-driven. The writing is lovely. The characters are complex, flawed, and unsure. Ms. Flanagan continues to deliver a well-paced, engaging narration.
I wonder what book three will be called and when it is slated for publication because I cannot wait and neither can my students!
