THE BOY WHO SAID NO An Escape to Freedom

by | Read by Henry Leyva

Historical Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Sheehy's compelling novel is based on the life of Frankie Medeross and his quest to find freedom in America. Henry Leyva gives voice to Frankie, who grows from childhood into young adulthood as Castro comes to power and changes Cuba forever. The listener witnesses Frankie's maturation as his family navigates their new world and he falls in love, gets drafted, is chosen for Cuba's elite Special Forces, and slowly comes to the realization that he can't live in a totalitarian society. Many failed escape attempts keep the tension high as listeners root for this inspiring young man to succeed. The epilogue assures us that Frankie is a real person and hints that a sequel will fill in the rest of the story. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
