ABOUT THE BOOK
You'll never miss the sunlight until it's gone.
Sixteen-year-old Echo Navarri, daughter of world-famous archaeologists, Alice and Peter Navarri, had spent her life traveling from one expedition to the next as her parents unearthed lost civilizations.
On their thirteenth dig, Midnight, Echo's twin sister, disappears without a trace. This prompts a year-long search that leaves the family nearly broken.
In an attempt to find some closure they reluctantly host a mock funeral for Midnight without ever recovering her remains.
Nearing the one year anniversary of Midnight's assumed death, Echo is sent to live with her eccentric Aunt Luna who is the caretaker of the centuries old Navarri Estate in Port Royal, Maine.
Echo attempts to settle into her new life in Port Royal, but soon finds that she's destined for adventure as the mystery of her family's history, the sunless town, and its oddly intriguing people teeter on the supernatural.
Story 5/5 Performance 5/5 Overall 5/5
Before the audiobook, I read 13 Ways to Midnight and fell in love with the story. Hearing narrator, Sarah Puckett, bring the story to new life was remarkable. Sarah nailed the snark of Echo, the perkiness of Maddie, and the wit of Aunt Luna. I fell in love with the character all over again.
What other book might you compare 13 Ways to Midnight to and why?
While there is a bit of a Twilight vibe to this story, it certain does not rip off the Twilight storyline.
Which scene was your favorite?
My favorite scene is Aunt Luna and Echo battling the "Pet Cemetery" version of Mr. Jenny. Luna definitely became one of my favorite characters after that!
Any additional comments?
I loved this audiobook. Sarah Puckett brought 13 Ways to Midnight to life for me again. I cannot wait to read and listen to the next book.
