Publisher's Summary

When the corporate monolith PortSys brought porting to the masses, CEO Emilia Kirsch and her son, Jason, accomplished what every other start-up company had failed to deliver.

They really did change the world. They reversed climate change. They created a multitrillion-dollar industry out of thin air, curing economic woes across the globe. They made it so that anyone could be anywhere simply by touching a screen...including the man who murdered Sarah Huff. 

Now, Sarah’s 17-year-old sister, Anna, is determined to hunt the bastard down. But there are a few problems. She doesn’t know who the killer is or where in the world he may be at any given moment. Also, she’s stuck at prestigious Druskin Academy, where PortPhones are banned and any student who attempts to port off campus is immediately expelled. 

It gets stickier. Anna’s also fallen in love with her dazzling new roommate, who just so happens to be Emilia Kirsch’s daughter, Lara. The dean of students wants Anna dead, perhaps literally. And she has only two friends to confide in; one is a reckless alcoholic and the other a bizarre fussbudget. Oh, and now she also needs to find Lara, who has mysteriously disappeared from campus.

Point B is the story of one clever and occasionally determined young woman seeking both love and vengeance but hardly ready for those two missions to intersect. It takes you to Vietnam, Hollywood, Singapore, Tokyo, inland Mexico, Oxford, the Maldives, Cuba, the coast of Northeast Australia, and all points beyond. You will find yourself plunged into a borderless, chaotic, oddly miraculous world that is ruled by a single bloodless corporation and by a family determined to keep it that way. PortSys never expected Anna Huff, and Anna Huff never expected love to make her this daring.

From the author of The Postmortal and The Hike comes Magary's most deliriously entertaining novel yet.

Sherry Potter’s only got one spell: portkey

This delightful story was enjoyable from start to finish. There were bits that didn’t seem very plausible. Some of the premise is a bit unlikely even assuming we accept the porting tech. The main character is gay but the author doesn’t make it weird. That’s the worst I have to say. Besides that, the characters are fun, the story is exciting, and it wraps up cleanly. I’ll continue to be excited when this author releases more!

Love story/action movie

It gets pretty intense at times. I definitely did not want to stop listening. Magary is a fantastic novelist who does an excellent job of giving you every detail to fully immerse yourself into the novel. Ms Soler was awesome.

Good Book

Performance was fantastic. Only issue, and its minor, is the deep Southern accent used for a guy from Richmond. Otherwise great.

Annoying

The parts of the book I could get through I found self-indulgent and angsty. The narrator has a whiny annoying voice. Not Magary’s best work.

Great book

Overall, I really enjoyed the book. The performance was excellent, and brought life and dimension to the characters on top of the already good writing.

The only detractors to me were with the teenage angst. A good amount of it felt genuine and relatable to an extent, but some instances pulled me out of the story and made it hard to get back into it.

Very interesting sci-fi take.

Great story and delivery

This is the first audiobook I have ever listened to. I have read several books by the author and found that the narrator brought so much life the dialogue that I really enjoyed the experience. Despite the length of the novel, it was enjoyable all along and never dull. Great experience all around.

"not Magary's best" is an understatement - bad enough to leave a negative review

possibly my expectations were too high with this being the third book by Drew Magary I've listened to. the first two were quite good, but this ... it's difficult to believe it's the same author.

Fun and incredibly well performed

It’s a very cute story, but the performance made it come to life. Amazing voices for the characters.

Too Teenie

I love this author but didn't expect it to be so teen orientated. Great idea but the love story was tough to get through
