Quick Take: The Map to Everywhere by Carrie Ryan & John Parke Davis

I decided to listen to The Map to Everywhere because Gwenda Bond spoke highly of the series.  So I downloaded it using Libby and listened to it on the commute, dog walks, etc.

I found it to be an interesting start to a middle grade fantasy series. I love the hook for Fin, no one can remember who he is for more than a few minutes. He uses this to become a master thief but it keeps him from making human connections with anyone.

Starts a little slow but picks up by the end. It is middle grade so has a simplicity necessary for younger readers. I listened to it on audio so not sure if that impacted the way I engaged with it. I liked it but didn’t love it.

Maybe should have my kids read/listen and get their take …
