Tim Gerard Reynolds narrates with a quietly unassuming English voice as he brings to life Whitehouse's poignant novel. Bobby Nusku is lonely and bullied--his mother is absent and his father is uninterested in him. He meets Rosa, a girl with learning disabilities, and her mother, Val. Reynolds's sensitive handling of Rosa's and Val's voices draws in the listener just as Bobby is drawn in to their family. As Val cleans the mobile library, she entertains the children with the stories within, and when reality begins to dangerously intrude, they take their sanctuary on the road. As the police search for the missing children and an ex-soldier joins the mobile library's crew, it is hard to see how this can end well. Could the answer lie on the library shelves?
