Narrators Dion Graham and Suzie Althens work together to give us a soulful exploration of the "lost boys" fleeing war-torn South Sudan. They portray teenage refugee Alephonsion Deng and his white suburban mentor, Judy Bernstein. Listeners should turn this title on with a box of tissues at hand because Graham and Althens evoke a range of emotions through their sensitive portrayals. You will find yourself laughing as Althens humorously explains the difference between the sounds of gunfire and fireworks. Graham brings us to tears when his velvety undertones describe Deng having to leave a sibling behind in the refugee camp because of lost paperwork. You may find yourself stopping and starting this tender exploration of identity, difference, and change days after 9/11. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
