"Narrators Cassandra Morris and Jesse Bernstein portray middle schoolers Audrey Alcott and Aaron Archer with assuredness. Through first-person alternating chapters, listeners learn that Audrey, Aaron, and friends have been thrown together at summer camp, where they discover that each of them has a "superpower" that has hindered his or her ability to connect with others. When a missing camper seems to unravel the group leader, Audrey and Aaron must overcome adversaries and trust in others to lead the group to safety. Morris and Bernstein's clear, stripped-down deliveries allow listeners to immerse themselves in a classic coming-of-age story centered around tween outliers who find friendship when it most counts.
