Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Jaiden Meltzer, Xavier Krosoczka, Noah Rico, and a Full Cast

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Jarrett J. Krosoczka’s second memoir, following HEY, KIDDO, recounts his experiences as a teen counselor at a camp for terminally ill children. Originally a graphic memoir, it becomes a powerful cinematic audio because of the coordination of more than 50 narrators, carefully selected music, and sound effects that enhance the action. Krosoczka portrays himself as an adult; Jaiden Meltzer portrays his younger self. At the camp, Jarrett uses his gift for drawing to overcome his nerdy past and access his feelings for fellow counselors and, most importantly, the campers. Most notable among them are Diego, a teen who struggles with both reticence and his illness, portrayed by Noah Rico, and joyful, giggly Eric, who embraces superhero status, portrayed by Xavier Krosoczka.
