Young Adult Young Adult • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Joshua Swanson recounts the story of a troubled vet, Boaz, recently returned from the Middle East, and his conflicted younger brother, Levi. “Boaz went in the military as a man and came back a ghost,” claims Levi, who is so determined to bust through his brother’s monosyllabic shell that he stalks him on a long trek from Baltimore to Washington, DC. The plans works eventually; conversation evolves, and so does Levi’s understanding of war and kin. Swanson has the tempo and temperament of the brothers down pat. The boys’ Israeli father and grandfather give Swanson a chance to demonstrate his Hebrew accent as they try to reach Boaz. Swanson’s narration of Levi’s colorful friendships and first romance is delivered as a counterpoint to the traumas of war. D.P.D. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2011]
