Bat 6 explores values in post-WWII America. The full-cast performance makes this powerful story an exceptional audiobook. Each character tells the same story from her own perspective; each has a distinct voice; each captures the pride, excitement, confusion and pain she feels at different times throughout the story. We hear the anger in Shazam building to an explosion; we sympathize with Aki as she debates honesty versus cultural expectation; and we sense what is coming as each reader records her part in the story. This is a great book to start discussions of prejudice and responsibility with upper-elementary and middle-school students. W.L.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award.
