AudioFile Earphones Award
Evison’s novel comes alive as an audiobook because of narrator P.J. Ochlan’s ability to create unique voices for each of the characters. At its core, it’s a coming-of-age story featuring Mike Muñoz, a Chicano landscaper who is seeking a break in a society that is seemingly stacked against him. Ochlan gives life to Evison’s extraordinary voices and dramatizes the situations the characters find themselves in.
