When young Michael wakes up one day, he believes his mother has been replaced by an imposter. A.J. Beckles's performance as Michael is solid--he credibly captures the angst and volatility of a 13-year-old who is coping with grief and anger. There are sections of the plot that are slow, and some moments don't quite ring true, yet Michael makes sharp observations, and one can't help but continue listening to see what happens to him, not to mention that "other mother." Beckles has a youthful voice that becomes Michael's, and his pacing and subtle variations in dialogue make this an easy listen. All in all, Dicks and Beckles make a good team.
