Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This audiobook is for fans of Huck Finn, Tom Sawyer, Mick Kelly, and other stories of kids and adventures--some frivolous and some perilous and tragic. Narrator Michael Crouch captures the spirit of the novel by providing just the right level of enthusiasm for the characters, who include three pals and a tomboy, Ukrainian émigrés, and a possible Nazi sympathizer. The story takes place when the Cold War was ever present and WWII not a distant memory. A plan to steal a poisonous insect to get back at a neighborhood bully and to help a young woman who's in an abusive relationship makes for a unique coming-of-age story. Throughout his narration, Crouch conveys a longing for a simpler time when things really weren't that simple. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
