Brett's life as a wealthy teenager ends when his father is convicted of insider trading. He moves from their mansion to his aunt's ramshackled house and gets a short-lived fast-food job before signing up to help 70-year-old pool cleaner Alfie Moore. Under Alfie's tutelage Brett faces the humiliation of cleaning the pools of his friends, as well as the pool of his old home. Can Brett's summer with Alfie teach him to accept his father's infallibilities and plan a future for himself? The ending is bittersweet and fittingly open. Chad Lowe continues to build a solid record for delivering quality narration for teen audiobooks. Vocal distinctions and sincerity contribute to a performance with substance.
