Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Casey Holloway

Children Ages 10+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Casey Holloway displays a full range of emotions in this gripping novel in verse. Eleanor is a survivor of a senseless shooting that killed her mother. She and her father struggle with loss and PTSD. They embark on a desert rock-climbing trip that goes terribly wrong, leaving Eleanor to survive alone without resources. Holloway is superb at capturing Eleanor's emotions as she undergoes a metamorphosis of the spirit. Listeners hear her weakened voice as she thirsts for water and her full-throated rage as she hacks off her hair with a jagged rock. As Eleanor draws strength from her past, Holloway also becomes the calm voice of Eleanor's therapist and the loving voice of her mother. L.T.
