Description

Beloved best-selling author Jerry Spinelli works his magic again in Eggs. Eight-year-old Davey's mother recently died in a freak accident, and now he's stuck living in a new town with his grandmother. There, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with Primrose, the 13-year-old daughter of a psychic who lives on the outskirts of town. Davey longs for the mother he lost, and Primrose is frustrated with supporting a flighty mother who acts like a child. Together, they hope to find what is missing in their lives.

Professional reviews

"Nine-year-old David is transplanted from Minnesota to his grandmother's home in Pennsylvania after his mother dies in a freak accident. Thirteen-year-old Primrose moves into an abandoned van because she needs space she can't find in the one-room apartment she shares with her mother. A tumultuous, extraordinarily healing friendship develops when these two damaged children find each other. Spinelli has once again created a satisfying story filled with offbeat yet realistic kids. Suzanne Toren is the perfect narrator, who, with the help of carefully employed sound effects, brings this little world to life in the narrative. Cassandra Morris becomes both David and Primrose, delivering dialogue with superb vocal agility. She moves smoothly from one voice to the other, even through the emotionally charged, fast-paced scenes. N.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
