Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Dietz

Young Adult Young Adult • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Narrator David Dietz enhances this exceptional first-person story. David Johnson loves being an "outcast"—he dresses like a Goth—but his life drastically changes when he saves popular Lucy when she nearly drowns. Dietz flawlessly captures sweet and sarcastic David, his spirited grandmother, and Lucy, the girl with the raucous laugh. The novel tackles difficult issues such as pregnancy, death, forgiveness, and love from a young man's point of view. Dietz portrays characters superbly and keeps the narrative threads clear. His delivery gives the twists of the story the significance they warrant. Young people of both genders will enjoy this. S.G.B.
