In this thoughtful debut, narrator Amanda Cobb gives listeners an emotional story of a girl on a journey to find herself. Leila is traveling across the country to see the Northern Lights. On her way she encounters four teens whose lives she changes—and who end up making an impact on hers. Amanda Cobb hits all the right notes in her narration, showing us various facets of Leila's personality—her spunk, charm, and pensiveness as she searches for her identity, as well as the intensity of her crush on a boy she’s just met. Cobb varies her accents, tone, and pacing for an engaging listen. Listeners will be hooked to the end. S.B.T. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
