If you’re looking for an excellent audiobook to listen to with your family this summer, Sisters of the Neversea is it! Narrator Katie Anvil Rich brings vibrant characters to life in Cynthia Leitich Smith’s reimagining of Peter Pan. AudioFile’s Emily Connelly tells host Jo Reed all the many reasons she enjoyed listening with her family. In this story, Lily is Muscogee Creek; her stepsister, Wendy, is English; and their younger brother Michael, is both. As the siblings get swept off to Neverland, their stubbornness, creativity, and love for each other prove to be sizable challenges to the mores of Pan’s volatile realm. Rich’s inventive delivery is beautifully matched to the world-building and characters, and she brings out the heart and intensity in this stunning adventure.
