Step Fletcher takes a job with a small software company, which means moving his family to North Carolina. The adjustment isn’t easy for Step, and it’s increasingly difficult for 8-year old Stevie, who can’t understand his teacher’s Southern drawl and becomes the object of her scorn. Stefan Rudnicki finds a voice for each of the main characters, capturing the personalities of the children as well as the adults. He uses accents judiciously to reinforce the differences between Step’s family and the people in the town they’re trying to make their home. As Stevie’s world of imaginary friends continues to expand, his parents realize that it is keeping pace with the list of boys missing from the town. Rudnicki draws on the intensity of the characters’ emotions, adding a compelling edge to the suspense. J.E.M. 2005 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
