The premise and storyline seemed promising, but it started slowly and took a long time to warm up.
Early on, I found the narrator's mis-pronunciations of Zumba (as "zumm-ba") and ramen noodles (as "ray-men", used multiple times) as well as several other words to be a distraction.
Lisa Scott also has a narration style similar to that of Amy Rubinate, using a "hyped" voice as though she is doing a news radio show, rather than the conversational style of the book material, and ending sentences heavily on the last letter of the last word -- particularly if the word ended with an "s", a "sh" or a soft g as at the end of "cabbage". Again, this served as a distraction throughout the book as the narration called attention to itself rather than being useful in bringing the written material to life.
Additionally, the narrator frequently repeated lines, either that were read in the wrong voice or with an inflection she didn't like and wanted to do over, but the outtakes were never edited away. This continued throughout the entire book.
Unfortunately, it turned out to be a poorly-used credit on my audible account.
