A Crooked Kind of Perfect (audio) by Linda Urban
This was a very cute, quirky book. It was interesting to see how a child deals with having a parent who is afraid of people. And how she deals with the disappointment of not getting the piano she dreams of and how she, too, is a little quirky because of her parents. I liked Zoe and thought she handled everything reasonably well, more maturely than some. While I am sadly not musically abled I liked the story of how music can change your life and how it is incorporated in the lives of so many.
Taj Alexandra Ricci is the narrator of this book and I liked her voice. She had the right tone and zeal for Zoe and I think she does a terrific job. She has a clear even tone and her voice acting fits right into the story. She does a great job of bringing the story and Zoe to life.
