Caitlin's life is shaken by the appearance of Lucas, a boy her own age whose presence provokes an already simmering violence in her small island town. Only Cait can see the kindness behind the mystery that is Lucas. In one summer Cait experiences near brushes with rape and violence, mob mentality, incredible insights, and unimaginable grief. Stina Nielsen carries the emotional and psychological weight of this provocative novel's study of human nature. Her voice reflects the goodness, evil, and hopelessness characters express throughout. Her performance is admirable and will keep older listeners riveted to this story of persecution and redemption. J.M.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
