Carrie Coello's narration warmly welcomes listeners into the world of 12-year-old Dory Byrnes, adding additional appeal to her personality. Dory's mother is dead; her Pop is fighting in WWII. Fisher, her 17-year-old brother, is a loving guardian of Dory and their brilliant younger brother, Pike. Coello makes clear Fisher's frustrations at Dory's headstrong individualism and adventuring. At the same time, Coello uses various accents and tones to capture the generosity of the Lower East Side community that supports the family with ethnic foods and kindness. When their landlord dies and the new one threatens the children, Coello channels his menace. Dory, ever resourceful, has a plan that will save her family from being sent to an orphanage--a new home in a mysterious hidden hotel.
