Narrator MacLeod Andrews's subtle Southern accent and gentle cadence help establish the Nashville setting of this coming-of-age story. It's about what happens when Charlie, who was raised on the wrong side of the tracks, is given the opportunity to attend a prestigious private high school. After he and his single mother move into their benefactor's pool house, the teen gets an insider's look at life among the rich and privileged. Andrews underscores Charlie's complex and sometimes contradictory feelings as the teen embraces the advantages he's been given while never forgetting that his new friends have little connection with how most people live in America. This is a powerful audiobook of boyhood friendship and choosing between following what's expected and following one's heart. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
