Description

By his senior year, Steve York has come through the worst two years of his life. His parents have divorced, and his girlfriend has betrayed him. Worse yet, after running away to live with his mother in San Diego, forays into the drug culture have turned his A-average into a thing of the past. Steve's only hope to graduate on time and avoid summer school is to write a 100-page paper for his guidance counselor. Unfortunately, he has to write about something he knows, and all he knows well are the last two years of his life. Will his assignment help Steve pull his life back together-or cast him adrift for good? In Rats Saw God, Rob Thomas makes a remarkable debut into the young adult fiction world. With stunning insight and biting humor, he examines the pain and awkwardness of growing up. Johnny Heller's impassioned reading brilliantly illuminates this story of one teenager's search for identity.

Professional reviews

"A distant relationship with his divorced father, whom he refers to as "The Astronaut," combined with the betrayal of his first serious girlfriend, sends Steve York running off to live with his mother. There he begins to do drugs and fail in school. The only way he'll graduate on time is to complete a 100-page paper. This touching, funny, coming-of-age story has received rave reviews, and the audiobook lives up to the print version. Utterly convincing as a 17-year-old, Heller captures perfectly adolescent attitudes, mannerisms and sarcasm. The decision not to differentiate the characters' voices makes sense for a novel that is constructed as an autobiography. The pacing and tempo never drag, and the humor is particularly effective, more in the listening than the reading. S.S.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
