Professional reviews

"Charged with the attempted murder of his abusive stepfather, 16-year-old Travis is sent to live with his uncle on a ranch in Oklahoma. Margo Skinner reads the nonstop action in her slightly raspy, intriguing voice, capturing the excitement of the story. She excels in her portrayal of Travis's mother and K.C., a girl Travis falls in love with. The story contains mild profanity and implied violence, which is appropriate to its real-life situations. Casting a male reader might have enhanced the characterization of Travis--Skinner's voice doesn't portray the male voices with convinction. Nevertheless, she delivers an enjoyable and enticing reading sure to capture listeners. P.A.J. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
