"Not as captivating"
I didn't think "The Runaway" was as captivating as some of the other Katie Flynn novels that I have listened to over the past months. I found it drawn out and boring at times, though I did finish the book and have to admit I liked the ending. I will however listen to more Katie Flynn books as this is the only one that I found boring adn I love listening to books narated by Anne Dover.
