Alice, who has a broken brain and an artistic soul, and Manny, who lived unimaginable horrors in his war-torn homeland, are teenagers on the outside of their community. Somehow they find each other, and along the way they find themselves. Beautifully narrated by Candice Moll and Ron Butler, this audiobook leaves the listener cheering for the unlikely couple. Moll's narration perfectly captures Alice's brain injury, especially in her slow, thick speech. Butler's portrayal of Manny is lyrical, capturing the young West African's cadence as he speaks. Both narrators bring the protagonists and supporting characters to life, drawing the listener into the world of their small Australian town. A.L.S.M.
