Jesse Berns reads this first-rate and funny novel with the voice of an unsophisticated teenager who possesses the mind of a learned philosopher. On the way to his senior prom, Monroe Anderson discovers his 11-year-old sister floating face down in the family swimming pool. His fully clothed dive to rescue her may be too late. While the family awaits the medical outcome--Mother holding prayer meetings, Father drinking more and more alcohol, and the public looking upon the comatose teenager as a messenger from God--Berns relays Monroe's sardonic and clever descriptions of life as he sees it in the very voice that Monroe himself probably owns.
