This is a tale about learning to see the true you and that sometimes you need a bit of help. David and Austin's story reminds us that overcoming obstacles can happen if you just get out of your own way. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend...

This writing appears to be mediocre, but it is hard to tell because the narration is so very, very poor. There is the usual mispronunciation of words, which I have come to expect, but that is not nearly so irritating as it usually is because this narration is completely devoid of tone, characterization, and expression. It could have been read by computer.
There is no indication that the narrator is actually reading the words in any sequence as the emphasis is often on the wrong word in sentences, and the the pauses between sentences so short, including between the words of two different characters in dialogue, that they are delivered as a long monologue. The listener has to try and retrospectively piece back together what the author might have intended.
There is no attempt to differentiate between the voices/accents of the two main characters, despite being of different generations and from different parts of the USA, and neither of them are given any expression. It's very fortunate the author begins each chapter by telling us the POV, otherwise you would never know.
I can't finish the book, so I don't know how good the story ends up being. This will be the first book I have returned to Audible.
