Set in 1959, this beautifully written coming-of-age story about 10-year-old Lucas Ross, who lives in Montana, is affectionately narrated by Pete Cross. Cross's plain delivery and sincere tone allow listeners to step into Lucas's shoes as he discovers the joys and revelations of adolescence. When a car crash causes the death of a teenager, Cross voices Lucas's uncertainty about the blame placed on the boy who survived. Lucas also befriends an ostracized new classmate, portrayed by Cross with a slightly Native accent and a defensive edge. Inspired by his progressive, young fifth-grade teacher, Lucas experiences his first crush and a widening world view. Perhaps there is room in life for more grace, acceptance, and new ideas than are traditionally found in his small Montana town. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
