Audacity Jones is an eleven-year-old orphan who aches for adventure, a challenge to break up the monotony of her life at Miss Maisie's School for Wayward Girls. Life as a wayward girl isn't so bad; Audie has the best of friends, a clever cat companion, and plenty of books to read. Still, she longs for some excitement, like the characters in the novels she so loves encounter. So when the mysterious Commodore Crutchfield visits the school and whisks Audie off to Washington, DC, she knows she's in for the journey of a lifetime. But soon, it becomes clear that the Commodore has unsavory plans for Audie -- plans that involve the president of the United States and a sinister kidnapping plot. Before she knows it, Audie winds up in the White House kitchens, where she's determined to stop the Commodore dead in his tracks. Can Audie save the day before it's too late?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Audacity’s charm and smarts make this historical adventure a winner.” Booklist (starred review)
“Larson’s thriller deftly mixes humor, heart-pounding moments, and a strongly evoked historical setting—it’s truly a story with something for everyone.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Larson infuses her romp with plenty of humor, making Audacity, her cat, and friends into lively, likable characters. With characteristic deftness, she weaves her historical material seamlessly into the story…The story’s focus on Audacity’s remarkable cat, with some chapters told from the cat’s point of view, adds just another element of charm…Clever, funny, and sweet in equal measures.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Lyssa Browne uses accents, pacing, and tone to give the large cast of characters life. She’s especially effective with the Southern accent she gives the bombastic Crutchfield; the pretend English accent of his diabolical partner, Mrs. Finch; and the French accent of Beatrice.” AudioFile
