When Stump, a mute boy, dies during what appears to be an attempted healing at a Church of God With Signs, the community of Marshall, North Carolina, will never be the same. Most affected is Stump’s brother, Jess. Three narrators deliver the story—one for each of the main characters whose points of view Cash explores. Particularly impressive is Nick Sullivan, who narrates from the point of view of Jess. Sullivan manages to project a youthful demeanor without falling into the trap of an overdone falsetto and succeeds in authentically depicting Jess’s fear and confusion. Lorna Raver and Mark Bramhall also fully inhabit Cash’s complicated, sympathetic characters, giving performances that are full of genuine emotion. This is one an audiobook that delivers an unforgettable listening experience. J.L.K. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2012]
