Bailed on account of both "skank" and "slut" early on. I have pretty much zero-tolerance for slut-shaming. I generally like Hautman, though, so I'm giving the benefit of the doubt that this is just a single tone-deaf book. Certainly the cover image of four girls with identical hair in four different colors looks cheesy and generic, racially "balanced" like a cover of the Babysitters Club, and that reinforces the tone-deaf vibe. So, I'm gonna pass.
Abandoned during the prologue, because a book that needs an explanation of place names and currencies and a glossary of terms before the story even starts is not going to be a good audio experience.
This came from the box of random audiobooks on CD that were loaned to me from a friend who loves audio but has very different tastes than I do. This is an odd choice, because it's not at all what she'd normally read. The synopsis sounded good, and this might very well be an enjoyable read, but clearly this would be best suited to a bound version, not audio.
