LIGHT IT UP

by | Read by Landon Woodson, Karen Chilton, Cherise Boothe, Eevin Hartsough, Christopher Carley, Peter Jay Fernandez, T. Ryder Smith, Julian Thomas, Kevin R. Free, Korey Jackson

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

An exceptional group of narrators is on display in a story that focuses on the shooting of a 13-year-old African-American girl by a white police officer, and the aftermath of the incident. The story's characters are diverse, and listeners will have a hard time believing there are only 10 narrators. As many of them deliver multiple parts, it sounds like a fully acted drama. Korey Jackson is the standout with his performance as "the Witness." This character's perspective is written in the second person, and Jackson uses his talent to make the listener feel every bit of the man's fear, pain, trepidation, and disgust. Listeners can't help but feel as if they themselves are the character--just as the author intended. A.R.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
