Publisher's Summary

With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows. The only thing Sang craves is a fresh start and to be accepted as ordinary by her peers, because for her being different meant being cast out alone. When her family moves to a new school district, Sang infiltrates a group of boys nearly perfect in every way. Grateful for an influence outside of her parents' negativity, she quickly bonds with the boys, hoping to blend in and learn from them what it means to have a natural relationship with friends. Only the boys have secrets of their own and they'll do anything to keep her safe from the knowledge of the mysterious Academy that they've sworn allegiance to. Bit by bit, Sang discovers that her friends are far from the normalcy she expected. Will her loyalty change when she's forced to remain in the dark, or will she accept that she's traded one house of secrets for another? Meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North in a story about differences and loyalty, truth and mystery, friendships and heart-throbbing intimacy. The Academy, ever vigilant.

So pleased to have found a new author

I came across the Ghost Bird books during a browse on Amazon and gave the first omnibus a go and found it strangely compelling and hard to put down. When I realised that the first two books were available as audio as well I decided to give them a go in that format too.
I'm so glad I did as the dual narration worked really well and I got just as caught up in the audio as I did in the pixels. Despite the wide range of characters, I found I could differentiate between them as the narration was deftly handled.
I really hope the rest of the books get the audio treatment too as I will be buying them if they're available.
Loved the story and the delivery.
