Summary

Would you give up your perfect guy to keep your best friend happy?  

Between her soccer superstar big sister and musical prodigy best friend, Leah Cooper has never been in the spotlight. And she's fine with that.   

So why would she ever try out for choir? Oh right, the incredibly hot new neighbor Josh, who she might like more than she secretly loves boy bands.  

The only problem is, her best friend Lilly likes him, too. They promise each other they'll both stay away, but Josh doesn't seem to want to stay away from Leah...  

A throwback to the early 2000’s, Mountain Creek Drive is a new contemporary YA romance series that will have you longing for the days when Britney loved Justin and you had to share cell phone minutes with your siblings. Back when Friday nights were made for football games and sleepovers with the friends you’d do anything for.

Book 2

I wish this audiobook is a little bit longer. Capturing that teenage angst and frustration can be hard sometimes, but it was pulled off effortlessly here, with a very satisfying ending Great narration too.

Not bad but just wasn't for me

I overall thought this was a decent buck and enjoy the story I just had a few issues that me personally didn't like. I feel like the characters could be real I think we can all relate to some of these people in high school. For me I felt like I couldn't connect with the main character because I found her to be a bit whiny and on the weak side. I I did think that the narrator did a good job with the story being told from single point of view but made it very enjoyable listen. #audiobookobsessionreviewer

Sweet stand alone story

This was a sweet story. There wasn't anything in the story that my 4th grader couldn't have heard, though I was a little disappointed in the way one of the characters acted. I haven't read the first book in the series, and it wasn't necessary to have read the first one to enjoy this one. I did like the characters in Leah's Song and I would be interested in reading more of the series. While the references to popular things from the early 2000s were cute, it also made the book feel a little outdated (like it was too recent to be a period novel, but just old enough not to be modern). Or maybe it's just my first book experience with it as a new period, kind of like the first time I heard them playing Red Hot Chili Peppers on Backtrax USA (it's not just 80s music anymore!). I liked this performance by Kaye Anderson better than a previous audiobook I had heard with her. I thought she did a really good job with this one. #AudiobookObsession

This is a great story!!’

I liked these characters! Daphne James Huff did a wonderful job with the story and the characters! They are readable and relatable. Leah and Josh like each other, but Leah’s best friend Lily likes him too... they make an agreement to both stay away, but Josh doesn’t want to stay away from Leah. What to do?? I don’t do spoilers, but there were times my palm itches to smack a couple of the characters!!! Kaye Anderson’s voice is perfect for these characters as well!!!

poor Leah

In my opinion, an author has to be pretty good to get readers to absolutely loath characters in a book. That was me. This book actually got me right to loathing. This book really demonstrated the many obstacles that life has thrown at Leah, and brings back memories of what high school was or could have been. Kaye Anderson does a wonderful job with the narration. 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Good story

Overall this has been a really good story with some great characters. Definitely worth a read/listen. My only gripe is that the narrator seemed a little nasally so I had to relisten to certain passages. But none-the-less, a terrific book.

Super Cute and Inspiring YA

I found Leah to be extremely relatable. The author did a really good job putting this young adult story together. We get a little bit of teenage drama with some angst but also we get to watch Leah start to get to learn what she wants in life and how she can go about achieving it. It is a story of overcoming fears and the pursuit of happiness. I really enjoyed this listen! The narrator did an excellent job staying consistent with character voices and it was easy to tell who was speaking throughout the book. I think what really adds to this book is that the narrator has a young enough sounding voice that matches the age of Leah. This narrator was a good fit for this book and the performance was excellent. I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Sweet YA Contemporary

Leah's Song took me about two hours to really get into. I think I struggled because I was just trying to get a grasp on the where the story was going. After that point I could not put it down. I listened to this book in one sitting. I feel it is a very realistic YA Contemporary. The characters are likeable and the story is unique. I would listen to more in this series and by Daphne James Huff. Kaye Anderson did a great job with the narration. She had distinct voices and really kept me listening, especially in the first two hours when I was struggling a bit. I think this book is perfect for anyone who loves YA Contemporaries. It does have a love triangle. If those are not your thing, I just wanted to give you a heads up. I received a copy of this book at my request, and I have voluntarily left this review.

enjoyable YA listen

I enjoyed listening to Leah's Song. I have not read or listened to any other books by this author but I would pick another one out to read or listen to. I thought the characters were believable. It did remind me of high school days for sure. I don't miss them but I don't mind reading or listening to YA books. I thought the narrator had a nice voice and would not mind listening to another title she reads. I think others will enjoy listening to this book as well.

A cute listen

Being a teen is supposed to be fun, but instead, it puts a lot of stress on a young mind. It will be a perfect listen for someone who wants to feel the reality of being a teenager! And the narrator's voice makes the story feel very genuine (5 stars!). I unreservedly enjoyed listening to Leah's Song! The throwback to the '90s did help me better identify with the characters. Leah is self-conscious, fun and awesome. Her confidence noticeably develops throughout the novel. I love it! Don't listen to all the naysayers, they must be very sad and disgruntled people hating their own life. Out of all Mountain Creek Drive series, this one is probably the best.

Throwback to High School Days

I enjoyed this YA romance. It’s a love triangle of sorts, two best friends that live on the same street and the new boy that moves to their same street. It’s like a realistic throwback to your high school days 😂 Who is going to get the boy? Narration was perfect! 🎧AudiobookObsession🎧

Finding her Voice

Leah, the middle child, always invisible to her parents. It's either their fawning over her older sister soccer games, or yelling at her younger brother, Luke, always getting into trouble. Her best friend, Lily, an only child, doesn't understand sibling rivalry or being ignored by parents.. This story shows how Leah grows as a person from being invisible, to do something for herself by singing. This story by Daphne James Huff shows teenage angst at its best. Kaye Anderson has the perfect young voice for teenagers. Her narration showed the emotions and personalities of all the characters. 🎧audiobookobsessionreview🎧

An enjoyable audio for teens and adults!

This audio took me back to the time I was in my 20s! It takes place in the early 2000s when Blockbusters were everywhere and your cell phone's purpose was just to make calls. I think many of us when we were young went through the same thing or someone in your circle of friends did. I'm not sure if I'd make the same promise these two girls did to one another, especially if the guy reciprocates the feels back. Every man for himself (or woman, haha!) Overall, I enjoyed listening to this audiobook!

Sweet and endearing

This is a sweet teen romance with endearing characters and all the angst that a good teen novel requires. It almost reads like excerpts from a young girl's diary. I love that the characters behave like true teenagers. There are sibling rivalries, best friends falling for the same cute guy, competitions (athletic, choral, and romantic), and babysitting. I love that the two main characters are just a wee bit outside of the norm, with their clothing styles and the music/tv shows they like. Even as a senior reader, I was completely drawn into the drama of the story. Very well done. I hope to read the others in this series. I listened to the audio version, and narrator, Kaye Anderson, did a wonderful job. I especially liked her portrayal of Josh, the main male character.

Leah’s Song is a great story for all ages!

Leah's Song Mountain Creek Drive Series, Book 2 By: Daphne James Huff Narrated by: Kaye Anderson Leah’s Song is the story of a sweet and shy young lady that finds her voice. As the middle child, she is the younger sibling of the family’s sport star, who seems to soak up attention like a sponge; which makes it easy for Leah to blend into the background. This is fine with Leah, she is happy to spend her free time building babysitting career she and her best friend Lilly started years ago. Until they get a new neighbor, who becomes the one and only thing to ever threaten their relationship. Leah’s Song is a great story for all ages and you can feel comfortable letting your preteen read this book. I am definitely a little older than a preteen but I still enjoyed it, as did my young teen daughter. I appreciate any books we can listen to together in the car. I listened to the audio version and felt the narrator did an excellent job. All around, I rate Leah’s Song with 4 stars.
