THE LINE TENDER

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jenna Lamia

Children Ages 10+ • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Jenna Lamia expresses the youthful longing of Lucy, who still grieves for her late mother, a marine biologist. After five years, she's adjusted to life with her father and is buoyed by her lifelong friendship with her neighbor, Fred. But then, he drowns. Lamia balances Lucy's grief with her determination to uncover the answer to a question her mother once studied: Why are white sharks appearing more frequently in New England? With perfect pacing, Lamia blends the thrills and frustrations of Lucy's research with her emotional path to healing. She dives deep to reflect Lucy's powerful resilience and her desire to understand the people she has lost. Using just the right touches, Lamia also enlivens the caring adult characters in the story.
