Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Denise Wilbanks

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

In the tradition of superb audio recordings of Southern coming-of-age novels comes WHERE I’D LIKE TO BE--about 11-year old orphan Maddie, who journeys from a lost soul to a girl with a family and a true sense of self. Delivering the first-person narration, Denise Wilbanks reveals Maddie’s spirit, both staunchly secure, thanks to the unconditional love of her adopted Granny Lane, and deeply sad and insightful after years confinement in the East Tennessee Children’s Home. The quirky cast of foster care and orphan children she draws around her comes alive in Wilbanks’s reading. As the children create a series of scrapbooks about family and home, Maddie and her friends learn the true secret of family that Granny Lane knew so well: “Some people just feel like home.” T.B.
