Children Ages 8+ • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Josh Hurley creates an emotional voice for a middle school student who puts on a brave face at school but is actually struggling to stay afloat due to his tumultuous homelife. Jeff's mom has become increasingly dependent on alcohol. When she eventually loses her job, she's unable to pay the rent, and she and Jeff become homeless. As Jeff takes on adult responsibilities, Hurley's unsteady voice reflects his increasing stress level. Hurley also captures his hurt and anger when he tries to persuade his mom to reach out for help. Listeners will cheer Jeff on as he navigates these tough times. M.D. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
