ABANDONED America's Lost Youth and the Crisis of Disconnection

by | Read by Janet Song

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Janet Song's deliberate yet expressive voice resonates as she narrates Kim's eye-opening and heartbreaking examination of young adults who slip through the cracks of society. Kim explores how people emerging into adulthood today have fewer options, more demands, and less guidance to achieve successful adulthood. Whether they're situated in rural or urban environments, their choices are bleak, even with some organizations stepping up to fill the social support role. Though Song's voice can sound slightly congested, she keeps a good inflective balance as she swings from sharing statistics to quoting youths to unpacking some of the hard stories that Kim has encountered in her research. Her delivery syncs well with Kim's prose, making for an audiobook that doubles its impact on listeners. L.E. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
