Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kirby Heyborne

Children Ages 8+ • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Kirby Heyborne, the perfect choice to narrate this timely, heart-wrenching story, embodies the voice Jason D, born in America to an Afghani mother and an Afghani journalist father killed while working for the Americans during the war. Heyborne's ability to get inside the the head of Jason and sound like a twelve-year-old boy brings this story to life. When Jason witnesses his mother being taken from work by authorities, Heyborne relates his inner dialog with a believable mixture of panic, fear, and a deep-seated determination set things right. We are inside Jason's head as he instinctively heads to NYC to find Auntie Seema, cautiously forms an alliance with Max. a girl with her own secrets, and ultimately finds a hopeful future. N.E.M.
