Audio Book: Listening Library

Ready for a new audio book and I randomly choose this from the Library’s Overdrive system.  The narrator was a little high pitched and I worried that I wouldn’t get into the book or the various voices wouldn’t be distinguished.  But, the narrator handled all that and more.

15 year old Grace is dealing with feelings towards her best friend, Eric.  Her father left almost a year before, her mother is still mad and her sister is dating a creep.  But her part-time job helping at the local nursing home brings her to Mr. Sands.  Mr. Sands is funny, sarcastic, intelligent and dying horribly.  When he asks Grace to help him die painlessly, Grace faces the hardest issue of her life.  And her decision may surprise you.

The book is real and feels like a true teenager decision.

Recommend: Grades 8 & up
