When the author and the narrator BOTH have strong voices, the listener wins, big time. That's the case with WHALE TALK, an offbeat look at teenage angst by popular young adult author Chris Crutcher. Brian Corrigan does a first-class job of bringing the Cutter Mermen, a swim team populated by high school losers, splashing to life. From T.J., the mixed-race athlete who seems to relish not fitting in, to teammates with handicaps ranging from a metal leg to a learning disability, Corrigan makes these oddball individuals sound warmly human. This story offers devastating moments of truth and an unexpected ending. M.C. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
