Daniel Kraus, read by Kirby Heyborne. Listening Library, unabridged, 13 CDs, 16.5 hrs., $55 ISBN 978-0-449-01495-0
When his mother dies, 16-year-old Joey Crouch is sent to a small town in Iowa to live with the father he has never known. Initially unwelcomed by his dad, the displaced boy suffers bullying from both classmates and teachers—but before too long learns about his father’s secret: he’s a professional grave robber. Kirby Heyborne provides winning narration in this audio edition. His youthful rendition of Joey is perfect and captures the essence of Kraus’s protagonist. Additionally, the narrator creates unique voices, accents, and dialects for male and female characters of all ages. Heyborne’s performance hits all the right marks, and the result is an audiobook full of moments of sorrow, surprise, drama, adventurous excitement, and creepy darkness that will appeal to young listeners. Ages 14–up. An Ember paperback. (Mar.)
