Publisher's Summary

You'll never miss the sunlight until it's gone.
Sixteen-year-old Echo Navarri, daughter of world-famous archaeologists Alice and Peter Navarri, had spent her life traveling from one expedition to the next as her parents unearthed lost civilizations.
On their 13th dig, Midnight, Echo's twin sister, disappears without a trace. This prompts a year-long search that leaves the family nearly broken.
In an attempt to find some closure, they reluctantly host a mock funeral for Midnight without ever recovering her remains.
Nearing the one year anniversary of Midnight's assumed death, Echo is sent to live with her eccentric Aunt Luna who is the caretaker of the centuries old Navarri Estate in Port Royal, Maine.
Echo attempts to settle into her new life in Port Royal, but soon finds that she's destined for adventure as the mystery of her family's history, the sunless town, and it's oddly intriguing people teeter on the supernatural.

,Twilight lite

Would you try another book written by Rue Volley or narrated by Sarah Puckett?

Yes I would try it for sure This book did have potential,it had a sort of framework but I felt it was the bare bones and little meat to it sort of a Twilight lite.However Id certainly give Rue Volley another chance.Sarah Puckett I think made me enjoy the book more .In most books the performance is important but here it was key .There are some narrators who you know aren't going to let you down. Their voices, attention to tone and story telling are great, you can put the book on and know you're getting the right everything for your money and time.Her performance held emotion and she did a great job injecting that despite the lack of range of emotions that I feel was actually in the print.The Lore was pretty awesome though that was well done.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I adore the whole archaeology scene and think that it was one of the most interesting things about the book.the least interesting was the repetition of questions Echo Navarri was asking herself and how slowly that went and how the answers wern't as satisfying as hoped.


Do you think 13 Ways to Midnight needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes as there were a lot of unanswered questions and the story didnt progress very quickly or far.

Could have been better

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I don't think listening to this book is a time well spent. I was hooked from the beginning and I thought OK this might be a good book. Unfortunately I was disappointed to find out that I was wrong. The book has potential in my opinion however it needs a little more work doing to it.

One of the characters I liked in this story is Echo's aunt. She felt real and had her own problems but she always tried to not let it interfere with her home life. She is honest with Echo, treating her more like an adult then a teenager but at the same time she does act the adult and put a few rules down.

Echo acted like a teenager which is OK. I expected her to act this way since she has been home schooled because her parent move around and therefore she had not been around people her own age. However, I found her to be slow in figuring things out. I don't mind the love at first sight but I didn't believe in the love between her and Thorn and I found the progression of the book very slow. There was not a lot happening in the book. Also we did not get a lot answers to questions which I found frustrating.

Some people have likened it to twilight and I can see why they have but if I had to choose between the two then I would go with twilight being the better because there is progression in the story and things are happening. That doesn't mean this book doesn't have potential because it does but as I mentioned above it just needs more work doing to it.

The narrator was OK she voiced the characters giving them something so you can differentiate between them.
