Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kate Forbes, Johnny Heller

Young Adult • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Reverend Raymond Beelson casts his net and his spell wide over two congregations. Thirteen-year-old Marina's mother sounds the initial note of change with her revelation that she must stop cleaning houses and begin educating her children at home, now that she's a "Believer." When the Reverend draws in 16-year-old Jed's father, whose wife has inexplicably dumped him, the lives of the two teens collide. In voices true and compelling, Kate Forbes reads Marina's earnest account alternately with Johnny Heller's witty and impertinent reading of Jed. While Marina struggles to hold to a newfound faith, Jed battles to escape it. Commanding and wholly believable, Forbes and Heller relate a world gone mad with religion as 144 "Believers" flock to Weeupcut Mountain, fearing Armageddon and finding, instead, a cataclysm equally chilling. A YA recording not to be missed. T.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
