Description

David Federman has never felt appreciated. An academically gifted yet painfully forgettable member of his New Jersey high school class, the withdrawn, mild-mannered freshman arrives at Harvard fully expecting to be embraced by a new tribe of high-achieving peers. But, initially, his social prospects seem unlikely to change, sentencing him to a lifetime of anonymity. Then he meets Veronica Morgan Wells. Struck by her beauty, wit, and sophisticated Manhattan upbringing, David falls feverishly in love. Determined to win her attention and an invite into her glamorous world, he begins compromising his moral standards for this one, great shot at happiness. But both Veronica and David, it turns out, are not exactly as they seem.

Professional reviews

"David Bendena's narration of Wayne's novel is deceptively straightforward. The titular loner is David Fetterman, a first-year student at Harvard who is academically exceptional but otherwise a person who makes little impact on his classmates. At first, Bendena voices David as a meticulous young man who is instantly and singularly struck by the very presence of Veronica Wells, another incoming student. As David begins to devise plans and then increasingly desperate schemes to get closer to Veronica, Bendana highlights David's progressive unreliability as the storyteller. The listener is swept into the darkest corners of campus politics and human identities. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
