Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jason Harris, Clara Bryant

Young Adult Young Adult • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Seventeen-year-old Becky Martin loves to make people laugh. When she meets Kip at one of her comedy gigs, they seem to be a perfect match; however, over time their relationship deteriorates into emotional, verbal, and physical abuse. Can Becky find the strength to break free? Can Kip commit to rehabilitation to overcome his violent behavior? Clara Bryant and Jason Harris support this complex novel and illuminate the cycle of abuse. Bryant is just short of amazing in portraying Becky’s actions as she desperately attempts to make the relationship work. This could be Harris’s best work yet reading a YA novel. He succeeds in making Kip a haunting character study in self-destruction. J.M.S.
