Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Kate Rudd dramatizes the quick intelligence and high anxiety of high school junior Aza Holmes, who has an incapacitating fear of being infected with a deadly bacteria. Rudd offers poignant pictures of Aza’s struggles through vivid portrayals of other characters…Rudd expresses most strongly Aza’s sarcastic inner voice, which is so developed that it becomes a character. The convincing portrayals makes it easy to see how Aza is hindered in loving, thinking, and living without fear. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“There is tenderness and wisdom here and a high quotient of big ideas.” Wall Street Journal
“A tender story about learning to cope when the world feels out of control.” People
“Astonishing…So surprising and moving and true that I became completely unstrung.” New York Times
