This audiobook--part of the Jimmy Vega series--follows the case of a Hispanic teen who is fingered for a crime he didn't commit. Narrator Thom Rivera shapes the characters by personality: A type A politician barks out dialogue in a simultaneously phony and demanding voice, Detective Vega's empathetic girlfriend comes across as gentle and caring, and teens sound like teens do, slightly unsure of themselves. The best voice is that of a gruff but wise old neighbor whose family was killed in the Holocaust. Chazin's book is paced well. She develops her characters well and deftly uses immigration as a backdrop to the story. M.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
