What a refreshing surprise it is to listen to a story in which good things happen to good people. In Australia, 12-year-old Pete and his father have been on the run from a secret organization for several years when events end that life. Luckily, people along the way have protected and looked after them. Stig Wemyss narrates with ease, and the plot emerges with appropriate tension. Wemyss reads fluidly and distinctly, transitioning between characters seamlessly. He engagingly captures adolescence in general and the character Pete specifically. Since the story is peppered with Australian slang, an atlas and a dictionary of slang would be enjoyable accompaniments but are not necessary.
