With endless energy, verve, and style, Guy Lockard is a total superstar narrating this middle-grade novel about Portico Reeves, aka Stuntboy. Supported by a lively cast and a dynamic production, Lockard tells Portico’s origin story—Portico loves life in his apartment building, but every time he catches his mom and dad arguing, he feels “the frets” (cue the red-alert sound effect!). So he and his best friend, Zola, invent superhero alter egos—as Stuntboy, maybe Portico can save his parents AND defeat neighbor and bully Herbert Singletary (THE WORST!). This adaptation is a special and unique audio experience, and along with Jason Reynolds’s smart, funny, empathetic writing that meets kids where they are, it’s guaranteed to catch and keep the attention of even the most reluctant reader or listener.
