Young Adult Family Listening • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Scott Hudson has one goal for his freshman year: to survive. To cope with the expected (friends dumping him) and unexpected (mom’s pregnant!) changes of his first year of high school, Scott keeps a diary in the guise of writing advice to “Smelly,” his unborn brother. Full Cast Audio evokes the humorous growing pains of Scott, his friends, and family. Ryan MacConnell does an especially good turn at portraying Scott as a smart, wry young man wondering how to convert these unpopular traits into assets. Light music separates narration from epistolary episodes, and a catchy jazz phrase indicates new chapters. This excellent production will keep all listeners awake, even sleeping freshmen.
