Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lauren Ezzo, Brittany Pressley

Young Adult Young Adult • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Narrators Lauren Ezzo and Brittany Pressley create distinct, powerful portraits of 18-year-olds Biddy and Quincy, special education students who are placed in the same home. Biddy’s tenderness is lyrically expressed as she finds images to express her emotions. Quincy is sarcastic, sassy, and scornful of her new roommate. The unique gifts and strength of these characters are quickly apparent and compelling in Ezzo and Pressley’s alternating first-person narrations. Both narrators make dialect sing and the heroines’ poignant stories of abuse and prejudice sound genuine. The girls’ individual growth and mutual caring build believably until a violent experience unifies them and heightens the tension. Honest, haunting, at some times heartbreaking and at other times humorous, the story is ultimately triumphant. S.W.
