What did you like best about this story?
I liked that the story focused on Zach, Key and their friends and the relationships among them. This is also a romance but it is written in a sweet way with no overt sex scenes to make anyone uncomfortable.
What does Luke Avery bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
While Mr. Avery could be a little 'dry' at times, I felt that there were moments when he gave the characters and the scenes the emotion that they needed. He did draw me into the story and kept me entertained. I would listen to another of his works to see what he does with other genres of books.
If you could take any character from Zach's Secret out to dinner, who would it be and why?
I would love to go out to eat with Ms. Trevott. Her back story was sad but she endured on and was making a difference to her students. I appreciated that. There always seems to be that one teacher in every school that just connects with the students in a way that makes it all ok.
Any additional comments?
Zach's Secret is the story of a young man, a senior in high school, his coming to terms with who he is. This is a book that everyone should listen to or read. I would highly recommend it. Many things can be learned from this story.
I received a copy of the book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Would you try another book from Matthew W. Grant and/or Luke Avery?
The narrator, yes. The author, probably not.
Would you ever listen to anything by Matthew W. Grant again?
What aspect of Luke Avery’s performance would you have changed?
Completely wrong choice of narrator for a high school student
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Zach's Secret?
The whole story with the headmaster was stupid, but I could have lived with the OTT drama, if there had been some emotions!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Zach's Secret?
The moment when the protagonist's teacher tell him her secret and why she stood for what he stood for. It almost made be teary.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I enjoyed the wrap up. How things go full circle.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. It is written well. It contains the cliches of school cliques but has it's own ground of realism that didn't shout cheesiness or unpracticality.
