"Combining forces, four narrators will make listeners laugh and cry in rapid sequence. Spunky and determined, Jess Thomas struggles to make ends meet cleaning houses, working at a pub, and making do to feed and clothe her two kids, Tanzie, the math wiz, and Nicky, whoÕs gone Goth, as well as their large, hairy black dog, Norman. When her client, software designer Ed Nicolls, drives Jess and her family to Aberdeen for a maths Òolympiad,Ó their lives, and his Audi, will never be the same. The quartet of narrators juggles the charactersÕ perspectives as the crises multiply. JessÕs optimism makes listeners smile while TanzieÕs upbeat approach to numbers is astounding. Grumpy Nicky and sensible Ed add humor to the sad bits. Characters and narrators alike roll with the punches of their lives. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
