  • The Actual & Truthful Adventures of Becky Thatcher

    By Jessica Lawson

    Read by Tavia Gilbert

    Becky Thatcher has her side of the story to tell - and it’s a whopper!

    Starred review. "Narrator Tavia Gilbert does a phenomenal job. She portrays each character with a different voice, giving the impression that the novel is read by an entire cast of narrators instead of just one person. This fast-paced story is perfect for historical fiction and adventure fans." - School Library Journal (audio review)
