Narrator Corey Brill's conversational tone lures listeners into the story of Jake Baker, a neurosurgeon. Musing about the workings of the brain on his operating table lead him to contemplate secrets in his own past, and an important year in his life. What follows is an exceptional account of Jake's twelfth year in small-town Ontario in the 1980s. Brill excels at portraying the unique characters Jake deals with, including his grizzle-voiced Uncle Calvin, the owner of the local occult store, and two kids new to the area who become friends. Humor and pathos abound as the doctor remembers the summer that changed him forever. E.J.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
