It's not easy being the middle child, especially when your dad is a Navy Chief. Meet Piper Reed, a spunky nine-year-old who has moved more times than she can count on one hand. From Texas to Guam, wherever Piper goes, adventure follows, inspired by her active imagination, free-wheeling spirit, and a bit of sister magic. Unlike her older sister, Piper loves being part of a Navy family, and unlike her younger sister, Piper is no prodigy genius. Piper is Piper-fearless and full of life!

""Get off the bus!" shouts narrator Emily Janice Card in the voice of 9-year-old middle child Piper Reed. It takes a lot to get Piper down. She's moved across the country, leaving behind the Gypsy Club, whose members joined her in chorusing "Get off the bus!", an expression they mean to spread all over the world. Card voices Piper's optimistic views of the advantages she can gain from having dyslexia, as well as her frustrations with her younger and older sisters. Piper's got a lot of dimension for the heroine of a short audio, and Card shows all of it. We see her spunky determination, upbeat mood when her father leaves on assignment, and the love she has for her family. S.W. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
