Young Adult Ages 12+ • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrators Greg Chun and Emily Ellet tell a heartbreaking story of two pen pals during WWII. Chun narrates as Alex, a Japanese-American boy forced to live in an internment camp. Ellet narrates as Charlie, a French-Jewish girl who is running for her life. Much of this story is told in an epistolary style, so the painful experiences are in the first person. The narrators make the listener feel each new degradation so realistically that listeners will need to wipe their eyes. Chun also shines in the third-person perspective when the story follows Alex from Washington state to the camp and then into war. Accents change seamlessly, and both narrators bring the listener into the action. Be prepared to binge on this audiobook. A.R.F. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
