"Thwonk" is the sound Cupid's arrow makes when it pierces a heart. Angst-ridden high school senior A.J. McCreary discovers this fact when she meets Jonathan Livingston Cupid. In this first-person story, narrator Christina Moore brings the strong, independent A.J. to life as she portrays the longings, mood swings and anxieties of a typical, extremely likable teenager. A special quality inherent in Moore's voice produces a tone at once cynical and naive. She achieves superlative character differentiation through inflection, pace and enunciation. Moore perfectly captures the essence of Bauer's amusing story, which warns listeners to be careful what they wish for. J.H.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 98]
