LIKE NO OTHER

by | Read by Phoebe Strole, Leslie Odom, Jr.

Young Adult Young Adult • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Phoebe Strole's earnest, hopeful portrayal of Hasidic Devorah Blum creates a compelling duet with Leslie Odom, Jr.'s, passionate, eager depiction of Caribbean nerd Jaxon Hunte. When Devorah and Jax are trapped in a Brooklyn elevator during a hurricane, an unlikely love blossoms, and they find themselves wrangling with heavy societal and cultural obstacles. Dual narrators are an effective choice in a story that alternates viewpoints with each chapter, and Strole and Odom interweave their stories gracefully. Strole imbues Devorah with a solid voice and strong convictions as Odom lends humor and urgency to Jax's conflicting emotions. For those who favor romance in their coming-of-age tales.
