PRIDE

by | Read by Elizabeth Acevedo

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Elizabeth Acevedo's bold vocals and lyrical style take this contemporary retelling of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE to amazing heights. For years Zuri Benitez and her four sisters have been watching their tight-knit Bushwick neighborhood succumb to gentrification. When Darius Darcy and his wealthy family move in across the street, Zuri and Darius make snap judgments about each other. Zuri is an aspiring poet, and her poetry maps her emotional journey; Acevedo--an award-winning slam poet--gives these introspective verses the perfect flow, displaying her mastery and skills as a performer. Overall, Acevedo's performance is soulful and rhythmic, bringing a tone of intensity and uncertainty to Zuri's struggles with saying farewell to her neighborhood and going after the future she desires.
