Publisher's Summary

Jackie does not like surprises. Chaos is the enemy! The best way to get her successful, busy parents to notice her is to be perfect. The perfect look, the perfect grades - the perfect daughter. And then… Surprise number one: Jackie's family dies in a freak car accident. Surprise number two: Jackie has to move cross-country to live with the Walters - her new guardians. Surprise number three: The Walters have 12 sons. (Well, 11, but Parker acts like a boy anyway.) Now Jackie must trade in her Type A personality and New York City apartment for a Colorado ranch and all the wild Walter boys who come with it. Jackie is surrounded by the enemy -loud, dirty, annoying boys who have no concept of personal space. Okay, several of the oldest guys are flat-out gorgeous. But still annoying. She's not stuck-up or boring - no matter what they say - but proving it is another matter. How can she fit in and move on when she needs to keep her parents' memory alive by living up to the promise of perfect?

Audible Brought a New Life to Novel

What made the experience of listening to My Life with the Walter Boys the most enjoyable?

I've read My Life with the Walter Boys on Wattpad and as an actual novel before I found it on Audible. I enjoyed the novel then, but listening to it on Audible increased my pleasure of this book. Renee Chambliss portrayed each character exactly how I imagined them to be during her narration. She put the same inflection on the words that I heard in my head when I was reading it the first time. It made this experience that more enjoyable.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I was a bit disappointed in the ending. It is left a bit wide open for me and I wish there was more.... could be because I wasn't ready for it to be over. I feel like a part 2 is needed.... hint hint - Ali Novak - hint hint....

Which scene was your favorite?

I can't tell you my favorite scene because it will spoil the novel and I sure do not want to do that. What I can say is that there were many that made me smile and laugh and many that made me feel sadness. It was well rounded.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was a book I wanted to listen to all in one sitting. I'm very thankful I have a work environment that allows me to listen to audible books, so I was able to do so.

Second Book NEEDED!

Would you consider the audio edition of My Life with the Walter Boys to be better than the print version?

I wouldn't know because I don't have a print version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jackie and Cole and maybe Danny and Nathan.

What about Renée Chambliss’s performance did you like?

I love how she literally became Jackie.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

For sure this book keeps you wanting to keep going and not to stop.

Any additional comments?

I believe there needs to be a second book to explain what is was kike for Jackie going back to see her friends in New York. As well as seeing what Danny will be doing in Theater. Finally what the Walters are doing and how Jackie and Cole will set out to do and school life. This book is really left for interpretations so you don't get answers for what everyone will be and how life was set out for them.
