Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Daniel Nayeri

Children Ages 10+ • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

The author intrigues listeners from start to finish with his powerful memoir. Both Daniel Nayeri’s narrative and his narration express the innocence, tenderness, humor, and losses of the 12-year-old refugee he once was. Nayeri captivates listeners with a patchwork of compelling memories and stories woven from Persian history and myth. He takes listeners from his childhood in his native Iran to his perilous flight from home and finally to his painful middle school experience in the asylum state of Oklahoma. Nayeri blends his heart and humor with a poignant voice to deliver tales as gripping as the ones Scheherazade told for 1001 nights. S.W.
