Word to the wise: I would recommend About Average to any man or woman who is the parent, teacher, or caregiver of any young lady between 8-12. Every girl at some point questions herself and Jordan is an awesome reminder that if she is talented, strong enough, and brave enough, chances are so are we. Plus she reminds us all that being nice is actually an act of strength.
Words aloud: Celia Keenan-Bolger is a perfect Jordan. She conveys both her youth and insecurities. Her voice is the 4 c's = concise, crisp, clean, and clear.
Whippersnappers: Perfectly safe.
Wind-up: About Average by Andrew Clements (published by Simon & Schuster Audio) is read by Celia Keenan-Bolger and consists of 2 discs (2 hours and 9 minutes). Audiobook rating: 4 stars. Narrator rating: 5 stars.
