"A multivoiced performance often works well for a novel with multiple points of view, such as this one. Andy Paris, Tony Ward, and Stafford Clark-Price ably handle the voices of a number of students who attend Canada's most exclusive boarding school. Particularly strong are the two main characters: Clark-Price portrays the poetic Julius, capturing both his energy and his awe of his stunningly smart girlfriend, Fall. Andy Paris depicts Julius's roommate, Noel. Paris's cold, erudite tenor takes on a chilling quality as Noel's envy, obsession, and sinister nature are gradually revealed. Other characters add to the picture of a sexually charged adolescent world. When Fall suddenly goes missing, students are shocked, and fantasies abound regarding what may have happened to her. S.W.
