Narrator Chris Coffey is unassuming, unflappable, and totally in tune with third-grader Max Leroy, his dad, and a myriad of memorable supporting characters. Coffey unfolds the story of Max's first three weekend visits to his dad's new apartment and neighborhood. Coffey's pacing is brisk, letting the story tell itself. In Coffey's portrayals of Max and his dad, one can hear how each tries not to let anything the other does or says faze him. Yet in the moments when true feelings are shared, Coffey's quiet, hesitant voice holds just the right tenderness and understanding. Coffey varies his inflection and tone to bring other characters to life, including diner owner Ace; the "elderly sage," Miss Tibbet; and close friend Warren.
