This novel of two teenagers writing letters back and forth sounds quite genuine as delivered by the skillful Kirby Heyborne and Michael Summerer. Ollie and Moritz live far apart in the physical and mental worlds they inhabit. Ollie is allergic to electricity; Moritz needs electricity to keep his pacemaker running. The pairing of these characters may be odd, but the back and forth between the narrators is not. Each narrator embraces his character well, and together they achieve two very different but complementary performances. Summerer picks up on the hyperkinetic cues present in Ollie's prose while Heyborne captures the languid and hesitant Moritz. Heyborne has the added challenge of communicating as a blind German teenager. Both narrators produce emotionally rounded characters. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
