FACING THE SUN

by | Read by Robin Eller, Chrystal Bethell, Adenrele Ojo, York Whitaker

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

The lives of four teen girls in a changing Nassau neighborhood are vibrantly brought to life by four expertly matched narrators. Robin Eller's youthful and rounded voice is ideal for her portrayal of Eve, a devoted preacher's daughter whose church is in the way of a hotel development. Eve's best friend, Faith, is an outsider whose father, a politician, is supporting the hotel. Chrystal Bethell's confident tone reflects Faith's privileged upbringing. Adenrele Ojo's sweeping yet grounded performance is well matched to KeeKee, the neighborhood poet and helping hand. York Whitaker's narration captures the malaise of Nia-- a local girl who wants a break from her smothering mother. The cast members play well off one another, creating an audible sense of community and the heavy burdens placed on these young women.
