Young Adult Ages 12+ • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners will empathize with Will Daughtry's frustration on his sixteenth birthday when his parents give him a Fiat. It's small--just like Will, who is 4' 11". Clearly, his parents have come to terms with his height. But when out of the blue he starts shoot up, his relationships with his blood brother and best friend, both of whom are much taller, undergo the same sort of sea change Will himself does. Narrator Robbie Daymond expresses Will's wonder at his new body even as he struggles to find new ways to fit in. Daymond makes the most of the story's funny and poignant moments as Will finds out that becoming a bigger man has its own challenges. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
