Jorjeana Marie's youthful voice is the first plus in this audiobook for beginning novel readers. The second is her portrayal of quirky 9-year-old Ella, the liveliest resident of a small San Francisco apartment house. Marie captures Ella's blend of annoying know-it-all qualities and friendly willingness to help her neighbors. While Ella takes center stage in the story, Marie also insightfully depicts the other inhabitants, such as Ella's two very different mothers, the new young couple who are moving in, and Ella's theatrical tea partner. The mystery of the never-seen elderly couple living on the top floor is satisfied by the end. More stories will follow Ella's further adventures.
