Description
From the award-winning author of The First Rule of Punk comes the story of four kids who form an alternative Scout troop that shakes up their sleepy Florida town."Writing with wry restraint that's reminiscent of Kate DiCamillo... a beautiful tale." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review!)When three very different girls find a mysterious invitation to a lavish mansion, the promise of adventure and mischief is too intriguing to pass up. Ofelia Castillo (a budding journalist), Aster Douglas (a bookish foodie), and Cat Garcia (a rule-abiding birdwatcher) meet the kid behind the invite, Lane DiSanti, and it isn't love at first sight. But they soon bond over a shared mission to get the Floras, their local Scouts, to ditch an outdated tradition. In their quest for justice, independence, and an unforgettable summer, the girls form their own troop and find something they didn't know they needed: sisterhood.

      • content: Rebecca Soler's narration is engaging and expressive in this audiobook about four girls who form an unlikely team. After finding a mysterious invitation to a lavish mansion, Ofelia, Aster, and Cat meet the kid behind the invite, Lane DiSanti. They don't become instant friends but eventually bond over a shared mission to get their local Scouts to replace an outdated tradition. The four girls learn about friendship as they support one another over a common cause and accept each other's quirks. While the girls all have distinct personalities, Soler's narration makes it difficult to distinguish one from another. The adult characters are much more recognizable, especially Ofelia's parents, who have Cuban accents, and the troop leader, who has a stiff, formal tone. S.C. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
