THE HARLEM CHARADE

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bahni Turpin

Children Ages 8+ • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Bahni Turpin provides complex portraits of this audiobook's three heroes, the way their lives intersect, and the engaging mystery that unites them. Observant, curious Jin is a Korean-American who was orphaned early in life and raised by strict elderly parents. Jin is intrigued by prickly Alexandra, who appears to be poor--but Jin sees that she funds good deeds for those in need. A school project about the past of their Harlem community brings the two together. Soon they meet Elvin, a boy who seems homeless. Turpin excels at accents and emotions and at revealing obscured truths about the main characters. She ensures that listeners comprehend the story's historical figures and quick-paced, suspenseful events. Turpin shows her gifts as she brings together diverse plots, characterizations, and themes.
