From USA TODAY Bestselling Author, C. L. Stone, listen to Friends vs. Family, the third book in The Academy Ghost Bird Series.
Sang Sorenson is forced to suffer through another of her mother's extreme punishments. It almost kills her.
The Academy boys vow it will be the last. They're determined to keep Sang safe, especially from her own family. Their solution: complete invasion of her life. Kota, Luke, Silas, Nathan, Victor, Gabriel and North do everything within their power to show Sang what true loyalty means. It takes more than blood to make a family and they want Sang in theirs.
In this third book of The Academy series Sang experiences a taste of freedom and what it's like to truly be cared for...to be wanted.

Sang's actions will force her mother to reveal a startling truth. A truth that will change Sang's life and the boys' lives in unpredictable ways. Forever.
The Academy, allegiance.

Excellent narration of bk 3 in Ghost Bird series

I have the whole series so far in pixels and print and, after hearing Natalie Eaton's narration of book 1, decided that I would get the other audio books in the series as so far they are very well done.
Sang and the boys get to know each other better and we see more of her interaction with them and also her mother and sister. There are some dark moments revolving around how Sang is treated by her mother, and her mother's attitude towards her is explained at the climax of the book - not justified, but rather her skewed viewpoint is explained.
The romance between the boys and Sang is very slow burn; she feels affection for them and they for her but it's still nascent enough that it's sitting in the box of close friendship and it's nice to see it develop gradually as Sang works out what she wants as she moves away from her mother's abusive control.
I love the different voices used for the characters; I know exactly who's speaking just by Natalie's narration which is excellent. I'm really enjoying the whole experience of listening to these novels and will give others by this author and narrator a go as well.
