Narrator Adam McArthur's youthful intonation and energetic cadence animate 12-year-old Caleb, whose desire to embrace a more independent lifestyle is stymied by cystic fibrosis. To avoid spending his summer in day camp, Caleb escapes to the woods to spend time with a new, seemingly magical, friend, Kit, who encourages him to abandon his well-regulated life with his protective mother, perfect older brother, and mostly absentee father. When Kit's escapades become illegal and dangerous, Caleb begins to wonder how much of her story is true. McArthur does a credible job switching up his inflection and pacing to denote the other characters in Beth Vrabel's nuanced and unflinching portrait of children dealing with issues beyond their control.
