INSIGNIFICANT EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF A CACTUS Life of a Cactus, Book 1

by | Read by Karissa Vacker

Children Ages 10+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Karissa Vacker memorably introduces Aven Green, an inspiring 12-year-old who was born without arms. As her adoptive family moves from familiar Kansas to Stagecoach Pass Park in Arizona, Aven is worried about fitting in. When classmate Connor "barks" at her, she thinks he's mocking her, but she soon learns he has Tourette's syndrome. Each character is realistically presented--the kids are loyal and funny, particularly Connor, who becomes a close friend to Aven. Scenes of the park and its eccentric employees add atmosphere. Vacker's tone becomes more intense when Aven and Connor investigate the mystery of the park's missing owner. Listeners will experience a hopeful story.
