Narrator Ramon de Ocampo captures Gideon Quinton's transition from obedient grade schooler to independent middle schooler. Speaking aloud, Gideon sounds gentler, more compliant than the often questioning, sarcastic, or annoyed tones de Ocampo uses for Gideon's thoughts as he pushes the tight boundaries set by his parents. While Gideon is the main character, his peculiar neighbor, Roona, drives the plot as she tells him fantastic stories and plans a risky trip for them to find her father. What de Ocampo lacks in character voices, he makes up for in other aspects of his delivery. Serious topics are delivered with a sprinkling of magic.
