Narrator Nina Alvamar delivers an energetic tone for soon-to-be- fifth-grader Mavis, who finds herself moving once again when her mother finds a new job as a housekeeper in Landry, Alabama. Mavis decides that this time she will make a best friend, and Rose, the daughter of her mother's employer, seems like a perfect fit. They spend the summer together, going on adventures and trying to find a home for Henry, a runaway dog. Alvamar easily transitions from spirited Mavis to even-tempered Rose, and finally to Henry. The characters are voiced without regional accents, which does seem like a missed opportunity. Still, listeners will be captivated by the escapades of Mavis, Rose, and Henry as their friendship thrives. M.D. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
