Young Adult Young Adult • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

The polished narration of Brandon Gill paints a crystal-clear picture of two high school seniors, Darius and Twig, who are struggling against the burdens of growing up in Harlem. The emotion, warmth, and humor given to the boys' ruminations about school, family, the neighborhood, and Darius’s own bird's-eye view of the world are tangible. Despite poverty, gang violence, bullies, and domestic problems, they hold fast to their dreams. Darius, a writer, wants his story published, and Twig, a runner, needs a track scholarship for college. Their dreams are what set them apart from the chaos around them. Gill’s performance is intense, relaxed, detached, or light in all the right places. Listeners will stay engaged with this story long after it’s over. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
