Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Crouch

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Michael Crouch's Southern accent depicts the East Tennessee origins of Cash Pruitt and stresses the gentleness and sensitivity at the core of his character. Crouch also portrays the headstrong certainty of his brilliant friend Delaney Doyle, whom Cash met in a support group for children whose parents struggle with drug addiction. Their friendship has weathered the death of Cash's mother, the discovery of a science-changing bacteria-eating mold, and leaving their impoverished hometowns for an elite boarding school in the Northeast. Crouch tenderly renders the fragility, kindness, and wisdom of Cash's Papaw, who has raised him and is dying from emphysema. Crouch shows his gift for adding richness to the spot-on, emotion-filled dialogue, powerful shared moments, and Cash's lyrical view of the world. S.W.
