Children Ages 8+ • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In a sweet and youthful tone, Channie Waites portrays Neva Beane--a spirited 12-year-old in the throes of puberty. When her parents go on tour in Europe, Neva and her brother, Clayton, are left to spend the summer with their grandparents. As Neva struggles to find herself and adjust to her role in a changing world, Waites brings depth to Neva's growth, especially when she follows in Clayton's footsteps and discovers the need for social activism. Waites dives deep into defining Neva's personality and creates unique voices for all the supporting characters. Vulnerability, fear, strength, self-love, confusion, and revelation--all merge beautifully into Waites's perfectly paced tones. E.P. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
