I like audio books.

Book Report.
She was born to a Native American woman. A woman married to a white man. The new born girl’s father was a very successful surgeon at the Mayo Clinic. They named her Apple and just minutes after birth the mother dies due to coplications from a recent accident. It wasn’t until Apple’s 15th summer did her father speak of Apple’s birth mother and Apple’s grandparents.
The title of the book is “Apple in the Middle.” By Dawn Quigly 2018. Mostly fiction and some autobiographical experiences.
After Apple’s sophomore year in high school her father and stepmother wants her to drive up with them to North Dakota to meet her birth mother’s parents and for Apple to spend the summer there. None the less Apple being well entrenched in modern school culture was broadsided with such a far fetch idea. So, self-talk with self deprecating humor and lots of anxiety lead her to meeting her mother’s parents. A teen girl in search of her own true identity.
Book is written for junior and senior high kids. However there is lots of wisdom and teachable moments in the narrative. I liked it. The audio book version is read quite well by the female voice actor.

  1. Nice! I just purchased Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage for Clem and I to read together lol! He’s not much of a reader and I don’ t leave home much so my contribution to any and all conversation has been ‘limited’ 😒. I’ll have a look at this one and see if it’s something he’ll read 😊. Thanks for the info!
