I finished listening to this book just before I left for my trip to New York City. I attended the Indie Book Event. I thought I would have a little bit of down time to get this written up, but it was pretty much no stop until I arrived at the airport on Sunday. By then, I was so exhausted, I don't think I could have strung together a coherent thought. Add to the the fact that there was not super spectacular about Mr. and Miss Anonymous, I just couldn't get motivated to put words on the screen.

 I picked this out of my digital library right after I finished Room by Emma Donoghue. I think I was thinking for something different, but the summary sounded like what I was looking for. It wasn't a bad listen, just too predictable for me. I think I would have liked to see more about what went on at the school. The relationship between Lily and Pete seemed contrived; I didn't feel any chemistry between them. The story just didn't hold me attention, and that's bad for an audio book because then my attention wanders.

It might have been better to have read the book, instead of listen to it. If you are looking for a light mystery to read, then you'll probably like Mr. and Miss Anonymous.
