Earphones Award Winner

Andi and Alex live centuries apart, but their tormented parallel lives eventually intersect. Andi Alpers, 17, is on the edge of suicide after the death of her younger brother when she finds the eighteenth-century journal of Alexandrine Paradis. Alex is trying to save the doomed Prince Louis-Charles during the French Revolution. Each narrator has a range of emotions and expressions. Emily Janice Card catches the contemporary tones of Andi, veering from despair to sardonic humor and making much of the satirical lists that characterize the first-person narration. Emma Bering portrays a breezy, opportunistic Alex who soon becomes a tortured figure, haunting to Andi and to listeners. As if drawing on the story’s musical themes, the narrators deliver an accomplished audio duet. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
