Any devoted educator or engaged student will recognize Adenrele Ojo's voice: empathetic, emphatic, and passionate. In other words, Ojo's voice sounds like that of a fine teacher. This quality is appropriate for a performance that captures Lopez's experience as an acclaimed principal of a groundbreaking and innovative school in Brooklyn. Ojo's performance is precise and clear. Her interpretation is true to the intent of any diligent educator; she is caring yet focused as she bends her voice around extraordinary episodes on Mott Hall Bridges Academy. Sometimes, there are awkward transitions; at other times, Ojo's delivery is overly enunciated. Nonetheless, this audiobook is enjoyable, especially for those who appreciate an inspiring story.
