Description

Jenny Hubbard's debut Paper Covers Rock earned instant acclaim upon publication, garnering starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, and the Horn Book Magazine. Tucked away at an exclusive boys' boarding school, friends Alex and Glenn fail to prevent their classmate's drowning in a nearby river. Distraught, Alex pours his guilty feelings into a journal, and Glenn weaves a web of lies to explain their actions that day. Meanwhile, their English teacher Miss Dovecott grows suspicious of the two and begins a troubling investigation.

Professional reviews

"During his junior year of boarding school, Alex is involved in a swimming accident that results in a close friend's death. There's more to the story than Alex and golden boy Glen reveal. Through the narration of Steven Boyer, listeners are in Alex's head as he deals with the guilt, grief, and fear of covering up the truth. Boyer creates tension in the transitions from Alex to his poetry and journal to Glen's voice, though at times they can be hard to follow. Boyer's quietly intense vocals highlight Alex's penchant for poetry while balancing the need to tell his story, including his obsession with his English teacher, Miss Dovecott. Listeners become intimately linked with Alex as he finds his own voice. E.A.B. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
