Children's author and renowned poet George Ella Lyon won the Golden Kite Award. Sonny's House of Spies is a deeply affecting story of a family whose closely guarded secrets are beginning to cause harm. In 1950s Alabama, the Bradshaw children-Sonny, Loretta, and Deaton-are perfecting their spycraft. Ever since Mama kicked Daddy out of the house, 13-year-old Sonny has sensed that someone is watching them, someone unseen. So one Friday, Sonny sneaks out of town on his bike to search for his father. He doesn't know if he'll find him, but one thing's for sure-he needs to know the truth.

"Sonny's confusion over his parents' turbulent relationship and his father's abandonment is only overshadowed by his certainly that there is more to the story of the Bradshaw family. Sonny's search for the truth in 1950s' Alabama is told with a smooth and emotive narration by Nick Landrum. Landrum speaks differently for each character, using a distinctive subtlety that does not compromise his even undertones. Despite the believable but slight rural twang and easy-to-listen to pace that Landrum provides throughout the book, the suspense may not be strong enough to keep all but the most focused listeners along for the ride.
