Kristen Ariza's warm and lively narration suits a sweet and funny story of a "patchwork family" that is learning to live together in Harlem. Eleven-year-old Bo loves her quiet life with her mother and is knocked for a loop when they move in with Mum's kindhearted boyfriend, Bill. Ariza captures the joyful voices of the many residents of Bill's brownstone: his overly enthusiastic daughter, Sunday; the lively twins, Lili and Lee; the twins' Jamaican-American parents, plus a whole menagerie of animals. Listeners will hear Bo's feelings of being overwhelmed as she struggles to find her place in her new family and puts a lot of pressure on herself to succeed. All will cheer as Bo and her sisters come together to create a fantastic block-party-concert-wedding celebration for Mum and Bill. Joyful family listening.
