Young Adult • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Luther T. Farrell's wallet is packed with cash, credit cards, and a fake driver's license, but it all comes at a heavy price. The 15-year-old is a slave to his mother's (the Sarge) slum rental and group home empire. Dealing with this ruthless businesswoman and single-handedly running a group home, Luther works to break free. Michael Boatman is a stellar match for this excellent YA novel. He makes Luther likable, the men in the group home lovable, and the Sarge a fascinating and chilling character study. Boatman's rich narration fluctuates from hip to crotchety to cruel with true feeling. This gem will stay in listeners' hearts long after the last track is played.
