Narrator Varia Williams brings much joy to this delightful story. Eleven-year-old Josephine dreams of playing on her school's cricket team and, in doing so, helping her father rediscover his love of the game--which MIGHT distract him from the dating he's doing. But when she isn't allowed to try out and Daddy brings home yet another date, Josephine takes her anger out on a powerful tree, unleashing a bigger problem. When Mariss shows up and charms everyone, Josephine is the only one who suspects the truth about her. Williams's exuberant Josephine and her conniving yet charming Marriss enliven this story, and her accents help pull the listener into the setting. An engaging, humorous, and slightly spooky listen for middle-grade readers. S.B.T. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2021]
