Professional reviews

"Individual actors take on the voices of different characters to narrate chapters told from alternating viewpoints in Frost's award-winning novel-in-poems. The story revolves around a group of teens whose lives intersect through Keesha, a girl who has taken refuge with Joe, an adult who leaves his homes open to kids with nowhere else to go. It's hard to tell these vignettes are poems as the stories unfold in bits and pieces while Keesha works to organize her own life and reach out to others in need. Listeners will be able to identify each character's distinct and memorable voice. A compelling and powerful listen.
