Young Adult Young Adult • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Alternating between the viewpoints of 13-year-old Kevin Johnson and the much older Sergeant Brown, Peter James fleshes out the characters and enhances the narrative of this short book. Though he has a passion and talent for soccer, Kevin’s future is jeopardized when he’s accused of stealing a car. As his mentor, Brown tries to get Kevin to explain what occurred before it’s too late. James maintains a strong distinction between each character’s voice, with Brown’s voice deep and resonant and Kevin’s softer and less confident. James also changes his pace to match the active chapters told by Kevin and the more relaxed ones told by Brown. Secondary characters are given distinct voices as well.
