Kristen Ariza’s warm and lively narration suits a sweet and funny story of a “patchwork family” learning to live together in Harlem. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss this latest delightful middle-grade audiobook from Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich, which will appeal to young readers interested in baking, animals, music, stories of summertime adventures, and more! Eleven-year-old Bo loves her quiet life with her mother, and Ariza conveys Bo’s anxiety when she and her mom move into a new, very full and lively home. Listeners will cheer as Bo and her new sisters explore the city, get to know and love one another, and throw a fabulous party to celebrate their new family.
