In a believable and engaging tone, narrator Taylor Meskimen conveys the frustration of a fifth grader living with sensory processing disorder. Eleven-year-old Willa likes to maintain a sense of control over her environment without letting anyone outside her family know about her sensory issues. So when she finds out that her divorced father is engaged to her best friend Ruby's mother, Willa is not happy. Meskimen convincingly portrays Willa's relatable anguish at the upheaval in her life. Meskimen also gives calm, patient voices to Willa's large support network, which includes both her parents, her occupational therapist, Ruby, and Ruby's sensitive mother. Listeners will sympathize with Willa and share her relief as she begins to accept her changing but always loving family. S.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
