Chiko, a Burmese 15-year-old, dreams of being a teacher. Tu Reh, age 16, is Karenni and hates all Burmese because of the soldiers who burned his home. Chiko is pressed into guerrilla warfare against the Karenni and ends up, injured, in Tu Reh’s care. Narrator Jonathan Davis rises to the challenge of depicting both sides of an ethnic war with distinct voices and steadfast pacing. Eschewing accents, he clearly portrays characters of both genders and diverse ages and nationalities. Davis’s serious, calm delivery of a few tense scenes makes for a gripping listen, but overall the story is surprisingly understated for a war narrative.
