The Midwest Book Review reviewed the audiobook I recorded, Olivia Turner’s Amazing Amazon Adventure, written by the extremely talented William Graham.
Here’s the review:
“Stephanie Quinn’s youthful, enthusiastic voice is the perfect match for narrating Olivia Turner’s Amazing Amazon Adventure, a vibrant story set in Ecuador that captures the culture and atmosphere of the Amazon jungle.
14-year-old Olivia Turner has dreamed about the Amazon even while at home in Vermont because she and her Spanish language class are slated to visit the jungle in an upcoming field trip which she’s been looking forward to for months. She’s lucky to be part of a small group of five students slated for a once-in-a-lifetime journey that seems perfect, given her determination to excel in everything she does. Little does she know that her trip will be even more adventurous than she anticipates.
After a grueling, long plane trip and a harrowing bus ride, Olivia is at last in the Amazon jungle, where the dire warnings of a fisherman portends dangers Olivia and her group hadn’t expected.
Stephanie Quinn’s voice guides readers all the way, capturing Olivia’s excitement, the lower-voiced and firm admonitions of Paco (“The mosquitoes are your welcoming party…get used to them…it is their jungle; not yours…”), and the other people Olivia encounters as part of her group and in the course of her Amazon encounters.
As Olivia and her friends help build the first school in Ascension, they face a brutally hot sun, a river filled with harmful creatures large and small, the lure of playing hooky and breaking the rules to have fun, and the consequences of rash actions and spontaneous invitations.
Is the old man right? Are they facing dangers certain to harm them despite the watchful attention of Paco and other adults?
The Amazon environment comes to life in an engrossing combination of Stephanie Quinn’s vivid rendition and William Graham’s descriptions of high adventure rooted in a solid sense of place. This spirited, highly recommended audio story pairs action with realistic observations of the Amazon and its environmental and social challenges. It will thoroughly engross young readers seeking the vivid immediacy of an audio narrative paired with a heroine’s determination to survive against all odds as she faces a series of encounters with deadly, unforgiving jungle denizens.”
