Dion Graham’s narration elevates this fascinating true story with a message for kids to be bold, courageous, and unique. The audiobook describes the history of the Golden Gate Bridge, including the process of developing and approving its design, transporting its steel across the country, building it, and debating what color to paint it. Eggers’s writing is informative but also funny, and this is where Graham’s narration shines. No bridge had ever been orange before, and Graham uses different voices to hilariously portray various people’s reactions to the bridge—from initial bafflement at its orange color to ultimate support for the color by people who asserted: “This bridge will not be gray!” S.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
