Description

Thirteen-year-old Brodie Lynch has been planning the perfect summer. He is going downriver-camping, fishing, and living off the land-with his best friend. But at the last minute, his troubled 12-year-old cousin Alex comes to stay. Instead of enjoying himself, Brodie must stay home and keep Alex company. When Brodie learns his cousin doesn't even know how to swim, he decides to fix that. He takes Alex to the swimming hole alongside the churning Blackwater River. But once there, a harmless prank goes too far, and the boys' lives are changed forever. As one lie follows another, Brodie must decide which is worse: living with fear, or confessing the truth. Best-selling, award-winning author Eve Bunting illustrates that honesty gives hope even when things are the darkest. Jeff Woodman's performance heightens the suspense as the events spin out of control.

Professional reviews

"Summer stretches lazily before 13-year-old Brodie Lynch as he contemplates a canoe trip with his buddies and a possible date with Pauline. Then, with one early morning, during a swimming event in the Blackwater River, Brodie's life spirals out of control. To live with himself afterwards, Brodie must find the courage to face the consequences of his action. As with many of her books, Eve Bunting challenges the reader with an issue full of heartbreak and consequence. Jeff Woodman's narration complements Bunting's story. His tempered pace is both thoughtful and thought-provoking as he captures the voices of youth. Woodman invites the listener to consider the actions of each character in this tragedy. Be sure young listeners have someone to talk to when the tape is over. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
