‘Adventures in Odyssey: 28 Hours’ ties back to ‘Novacom’ 20 Years Later
By Sophia Monastra
I am not the “Adventures in Odyssey” fanatic of my household. That title belongs to my younger sister. I only reap the benefits of her AIO Club account, one of which is access to the latest album, ‘28 Hours.’ Despite this album being written for a younger audience, I found much to enjoy from it.
