Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dana Lubotsky

Children Ages 10+ • 1.7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

In this touching first-person narrative, 13-year-old Phoebe Harte tells about her younger brother, Mick, who died in a bicycle accident. Since he was also her best friend, Phoebe must deal with a double dose of grief in this funny, witty, never-maudlin tale. Dana Lubotsky is the perfect narrator; she convincingly delivers an exceptional performance as Phoebe. Without a trace of reading, Lubotsky makes this seem like her own story. Although her high-pitched voice is initially surprising, after one paragraph her clear, expressive lilt is a pleasure to hear. She sensitively conveys the full range of emotions that the grieving, reminiscing Phoebe and her parents experience. Park's heartwarming story will leave a lasting impression, as will Lubotsky's flawless portrayal of Phoebe. J.H.B.
