by | Read by Sullivan Jones

Children Ages 10+ • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Moving with ease among a memorable cast of characters, Sullivan Jones narrates a coming-of-age story that wrestles with friendship, belonging, and what it actually means to be ordinary. After a lopsided, ill-advised trade (a baby sister for a bag of fireworks?!) lands Caleb and Bobby Gene in hot water with their parents, their summer is looking like one long slog. Enter Styx Malone, the smooth-talking older boy from across the way, who is anything but ordinary and knows a thing or two about making trades. The story unfolds through Caleb's eyes, and Jones dials into his energy and growing defiance as he struggles against his family's expectations. For the adult characters hovering outside the boys' world, Jones switches to deeper tones, creating authentic exchanges. A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
