I absolutely enjoyed the audio book version of Carter Finally Gets It. Brent Crawford book about Will Carter’s freshman year in high school is very enjoyable. It gave me a peek into the mind of a teenaged boy. Carter obsesses about girls, sports, “being cool,” and girls, especially one girl in particular, Abby. There were plenty of times where I laughed out loud and shaking my head. So hilarious!

I would ordinarily go off on a tangent (yet again) about how I really enjoy audiobooks. But I won’t this time. I’ll just quote the audiobook review that mirrors my thoughts so well.

AudioFile Magazine Review:
“Will Carter is a 14-year-old trying to find his way through his freshman year. He stumbles through that coming-of-age time with school, friends, peer pressure, parties, sports, an older sister, bullies, grown-ups, and, yes, girls and sex. He’s too cool, not cool enough, immature at times, savvy at others. Brent Crawford’s story is laugh-out-loud funny and occasionally poignant. Nick Podehl gives a wonderfully animated performance, telling the story through Carter’s perspective. His narration is wild at times, but always appropriate. He also does well with minor characters; his portrayal of a particular bully is downright hysterical. In particular, his voices, tones, and inflections for Carter will keep listeners interested as he does indeed figure out what getting through his first year of high school is all about.”

If you’re looking for an audiobook to begin your listening experience, I wholeheartedly recommend Carter Finally Gets It.
