Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kirby Heyborne

Children Ages 8+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Kirby Heyborne nimbly conveys a range of emotions as he narrates the story of 13-year-old Squint. Heyborne tenderly portrays awkward but impassioned Squint, with his impossibly thick glasses and nerdy comic book obsession. Having withdrawn from school life, Squint finds a surprising friend in McKell, a troubled new girl who challenges him to experiment, explore, and go adventuring. Heyborne communicates Squint's complex inner life, from his initial introspection to the implacable confidence that he wields at the story's close. Heyborne's exquisite rendering of Squint's sorrow when faced with unimaginable loss is affecting and authentic. Listeners will be captivated by this unlikely hero and will cheer him on as he boldly faces his deepest fears and inspires forgiveness and bravery in those around him. S.A.H.
