Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Hope Davis

Children (Ages 8+) • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

ALL ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE is a quiet, kind story, a chronology of heartache and healing told around the milestones of summer vacation, first boyfriends, and Thanksgiving at the kids' table. Even as Donna is trying to understand how she and her best friend can be drifting apart, she's having hometown adventures like befriending the groundskeeper of a grand estate. Hope Davis's gentle voice conveys humor and innocence, and she always sounds slightly surprised, as if amazed again and again by the revelations of childhood. Lynne Rae Perkins's writing is spare and lovely, holding hope that even when the universe, or the heart, feels vast and empty, we are not alone. J.M.D. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
