Publisher's Summary

Some days are brighter than others, but Penelope Finnel has been taught she can be invisible behind the colored lenses of her heart-shaped sunglasses.
Her mind is her worst enemy, and simply waking up in the morning is risky. For a kid like her, staying in bed is easier, especially when the day has come to start school in a new town with new kids who don’t understand that the clouds are not the only reason everything is so gloomy.
Dillon Decker is a typical boy from a typical small town who radiates light and happiness. Under the hovering glare from her father, Dillon leads Penelope around on his bicycle’s handlebars, hoping he is the cure to her madness.
But when friend turns to lover, and lover turns to caretaker, how much can either of them tolerate before they’re swallowed whole? A story about moving trucks and rollerblades, candy for smiles, and notes across lawns. First loves and the struggle to keep it sane. The true love way.

1st True Love

Where does True Love Way rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 5Beautifully written, it took me back to those early days when your first love was everything. When you thought your life would end if you couldn't be with that person forever.

What other book might you compare True Love Way to and why?

As far as that first love aspect I would say Bully & Revil by Penelope Douglas, that young special pure first love.

Which character – as performed by Jeff Hays – was your favorite?

Honestly I can't choose just one, I am blown away by Jeff Hays talent I can't believe how many charators he performed in this book. He was outstanding, ok maybe Penelope's mum and dad, no can't choose I loved them all.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes when Dillon came to the realisation that he couldn't live without Pen,not matter what had happened between them in the past. And most importantly knowing what he would have to endure by wanting her in his life/future

Audio that shines

First the story... Mary Elizabeth wrote a beautiful book about parental struggles, childhood sweethearts, mental illness and unconditional love.

I laughed and I cried as I rode this emotional roller coaster. My favorite parts were the way Pen's dad protected her. I laughed every time he would yell at Dillon. There was a lot of uncomfortable moments as the reader is exposed to mental illness and the difficult choices that Pen's parents have to make and how much Dillon would accept.


I absolutely loved every minute of this audio. I have read the book previously and sometimes I get nervous that the audio won't live up to the written word. I didn't need to worry with this book. Jeff Hays does an amazing job, especially with how many different characters he had to portray. I was thoroughly impressed.

Didn't want to put it down

Any additional comments?

This is a true coming of age story beginning with bubblegum and bicycles, skinned knees and roaming the streets until dark. Young love just entering 8th grade. We follow their lives as they progress, with the regular ups and downs but also with Pen and her constant battle with depression, the daily struggle just to get out of bed and how she is able to overcome it.
If you have any experience with depression in your own life, you will probably see similarities. If not, it's very good at explaining why 'Aunt Jill' does some of the things she does.
