Sunny is the third winning character in Jason Reynolds's Track series. Sunny has always seemed to have a bright disposition, that is, until the day he inexplicably gives up on winning a track race. The move isn't inexplicable to listeners, for narrator Guy Lockard reveals Sunny's true thoughts and feelings as written in his journal. Lockard's voice clouds as Sunny recounts how he's always thought of himself as a murderer because his mother died when she gave birth to him. He voices Sunny's confusion, angst, and anger with his inscrutable father. Lockard also captures Sunny's humor and joy when he dances and his adoration of language, especially, the sounds that flavor his witty writing. Lockard realizes Reynolds's rhythms and wordplay, fully expressing their dramatic potential. Engaging interviews with Reynolds and Lockard follow the audiobook. S.W.
