I cannot fathom why the author and/or publisher decided to have a British narrator read a book written from the perspective of an American teenager from California. Even more confusing is why she would read that character in her British accent instead of using an American one. The first narrator did a great job, and this book lost a lot of the power of the first one due to this curious and distracting choice. This audio also picks up quite a lot of unpleasant sounds from the narrator--such as loud swallowing--that detract from the narration. If there is a third book, I hope it's read by the original narrator, or at least someone who can do an American accent.
The story is almost as engrossing as the first volume, and it's well worth a credit if you can tolerate the narration issues.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Having the same narrator as the first book- it's easier to make a connection that way.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator didn't differentiate between characters that well. Also had weird pauses in the reading.Her accent was inappropriate for the main character of the book.
