When Bill Warrington's granddaughter, April, runs away from home and turns up at his house, the elderly man and teenage girl take off on a road trip. She hopes for musical stardom while he hopes for a family reconciliation. Joe Barrett narrates with a gravelly tone that's a perfect match for the gruff Bill's voice and thoughts. With only a small shift, Barrett gives April a cynical teen voice. Along the way, Bill's disintegrating mental state and April's increasing concern for him are brought to life in Barrett's voice. The dysfunctional characters feel familiar at times, but Barrett and King keep the interest going in this family drama. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
