In Cory Doctorow’s latest YA thriller, Marcus, a 17-year-old hacker, finds himself imprisoned by the Department of Homeland Security after a massive terrorist attack in San Francisco. In a sign of the times, the U.S. is becoming an Orwellian police state, and Marcus is the only one who can set things right. Kirby Heyborne is the perfect choice to narrate. His youthful voice offers a sly intelligence beyond its years while still managing to sound innocent enough to garner plenty of sympathy. Heyborne becomes Marcus in every possible respect, never reading, but simply living the role. Listeners will find themselves immersed in a genuine portrayal that is as seamless and well realized as the story itself. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
