Description

The Art of Losing is a compelling debut that explores issues of addiction, sisterhood, and loss. On one terrible night, 17-year-old Harley Langston's life changes forever. At a party she discovers her younger sister, Audrey, hooking up with her boyfriend, Mike-and she abandons them both in a rage. When Mike drunkenly attempts to drive Audrey home, he crashes and Audrey ends up in a coma. Now Harley is left with guilt, grief, pain and the undeniable truth that her ex-boyfriend (who is relatively unscathed) has a drinking problem. So it's a surprise that she finds herself reconnecting with Raf, a neighbor and childhood friend who's recently out of rehab and still wrestling with his own demons. At first Harley doesn't want to get too close to him. But as Audrey awakens and slowly recovers, Raf starts to show Harley a path forward that she never would have believed possible-one guided by honesty, forgiveness, and redemption.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Suzy Jackson is the perfect fit for this YA fiction, the heartfelt story of Harley's journey through growth, forgiveness, and love in the aftermath of betrayal and loss. With its poignant moments of sorrow, the story calls for a narrator who can match the characters' intensity of emotions. It's apparent in Jackson's performance from the first few moments how effective she is at evoking emotion. Her earnest voice highlights Harley's deep connection with other characters, which gives the painful scenes a distinct potency. Jackson's proficient performance definitely enhances the listener's experience of this story. N.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
