Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tavia Gilbert

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Be prepared to put your life on hold once you start this audiobook about the relationships among a reclusive author, Mimi; her 9-year-old son, Frank; and her newly hired personal assistant, Alice. The story revolves around young Frank, who has Asperger’s. His personal quirks both delight and frustrate Alice, who becomes the boy's principal companion while Mimi writes her new novel. Gilbert nails the rhythm of Frank's unique speech pattern while instilling his dialogue with charm and innocence. She transitions so seamlessly between Alice and Frank that listeners may forget there’s only one narrator. Don't miss this outstanding production. C.B.L.
