I love it when people who listen to audiobooks are completely taken by the narrator’s work. Tyler Stevens has narrated all of the Better Than books and he truly put a piece of himself into each character. Barb at Hearts on Fire loved his take on Curt and Jack’s story. Take a listen to Better Than Friends and see (or hear) what you think!
On another note…I saw this great quote recently and immediately thought of my son. It made me smile. I set it aside but went on with my day. Later, my husband mentioned a guy he knew who was telling him about his six-year old son who’s… different, weird, an outside of the box thinker, for sure. We have three kids and our oldest, who will be twenty-one next Wednesday, isn’t like his brother and sister. He’s different. The guy makes his own rules and beats to his own drum. Not destructively but with the sincerity of a soul who ingeniously sees things his own way. Conformity isn’t in his bloodstream. The dad of the six-year may or may not have a kid like mine, but his concerns are valid. His son is ostracized, bullied and if first grade is a challenge, he’s really worried about the next eleven in public school. I don’t blame him. It’s scary.
But it does get better. I’ll share a little of my thoughts and experiences about raising a so-called “weird” kid next week. I assure you, the honor and joy are all mine.
Happy weekend and Happy Reading! Lane xo
