A Juvenile Fiction Audiobook Review


The Summer I Learned to Fly

By: Dana Reinhardt

Genre: juvenile fiction

Pages: 224

Published: 2011

Audiobook:  4 CD’s (4 hrs and 25 mins)

Read: October

4 out of 5

A coming-of-age story that is truly remarkable, funny and sad at the same time. Drew doesn’t have many friends, but she does have three names, a pet rat and her deceased dad’s Book of Lists. As with most teens her age, she discovers that adventure and freedom can be right around the corner or, in her case, the back alley.  The narrator of the audiobook version has the animated voice needed for the retelling of Drew’s story and blossoms the story to life.  While this is the story of a thirteen year old girl, I believe boys could relate to the mischievous nature of Emmett Crane, Drew’s troubled and mysterious friend, and enjoy the story as much as girls.

Dana is the author of several juvenile novels. You can read about them all at www.danareinhardt.net
