The True Meaning of Smekday by, Adam Rex narrated by, Bahni Turpin

The True Meaning of Smekday by, Adam Rex narrated by, Bahni Turpin

What a fun book!! I highly recommend listening to this one on audio Bahni Turpin’s narration is Fantastic!!

I wasn’t sure what I would think of a book about an alien invasion since I am more of a fantasy girl than a sci-fi one. However this is such a fun story I recommend it to teens and adults alike! Our heroine Gratuity “Tip” Tucci is 11 going on 40 she is assigned a paper for a time capsule on “The True Meaning of Smekday” but Tip’s story is not the usual fare and she doesn’t know where to start, should it be when her mother starts receiving alien messages from the mole in her back? Or when she meets and befriends one of the Boov named J-Lo? Or about her journey to Happy Mouse Land where the aliens are sending all the humans?

This is such a great adventure and hilarious to boot. I love Tip and J-Lo well actually every character in this book is so fun! I don’t know what else to say, I just feel like I can’t do it justice other than to say go get this book and enjoy it! You will not be disappointed!

I have recommended this book so many times I think this is a great roadtrip book!

I have been a fan of Bahni Turpin for a long time I’ve listened to her narrate many southern fiction books but her narration of this book shot her to the top of my favorite narrators list. This one shows her absolutely amazing range.
