Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author CL Stone, listen to Introductions, the first book in The Academy Ghost Bird Series.
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.

A good version of Ghost Bird 1

I had previously listened to the two-narrator version of Introductions, the first book in the Ghost Bird series and enjoyed that but I've also enjoyed this version and the narrator was very good at presenting the characters' emotions and differentiating between them so you can tell who's speaking at any given moment. I am pleased that all of the books in the series (currently released) will be put into audio & I'm looking forward to getting the full set! Sang Sorenson has had a bad start in life but with the arrival of the Academy boys it's going to get a lot more interesting and dangerous. Book 1 sets up the first meetings between key characters and introduces them to the school where some of the action / conflict takes place. It ends on an intriguing note - not a cliffhanger - and the reader is set up nicely for book 2.
I will re-listen to this.
