Summary

From S. E. Smith, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, comes this emotionally charged coming-of-age story filled with action, adventure, and suspense for listeners of all ages.

An act of defiance will either kill her or change her life forever.

Sixteen-year-old Makayla Summerlin enjoyed one thing in her crazy, messed-up existence: hanging with her friends at school. But her life is uprooted when she suddenly finds herself forced to live with a grandfather she barely remembers. One act of defiance will change her life forever. Having trouble adjusting to her new home, she sets sail in her grandfather's old sailboat. On a journey that will challenge everything she has ever believed about herself, Makayla must overcome her fears if she, and a surprising stowaway, are to survive.

Young Adventure Story

If you could sum up Voyage of the Defiance in three words, what would they be?

Strong, dedicated & brave.

What did you like best about this story?

The fact I could visualize this young gal and guy doing what they did.

Have you listened to any of Suzanne Elise Freeman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No this I believe was a first.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Oh there were times I cried, ah okay there was many times I cried. But I laughed also.

Any additional comments?

I usually like more adult themed books, but this was a very nice change for me. SE Smith did a great job.

Amazing!!

The best coming of age story I ever had the pleasure of reading / listen to. If any coming of age story should become a movie this should be the first on the list!
