About the Author:

Irene Hunt is the author of many distinguished books for young people. Her first novel, Across Five Aprils, was a Newberry Honor Book and received a Lewis Carroll Shelf Award. For her second novel, Up a Road Slowly, Ms. Hunt was awarded the Newberry Medal. Ms. Hunt was born in southern Illinois and has received degrees from the University of Illinois and the University of Colorado. For many years she taught in the public schools of northern Illinois, and later she taught psychology at the University of South Dakota. Ms. Hunt now lives in Florida.

From AudioFile:

In a horrifying, yet ultimately triumphant, psychological study of child abuse and recovery, Georgie Burgess struggles to survive, first physically in a hostile environment, then spiritually in the boys school to which he is removed. George Guidall's delivery of the third-person narration is consistently faithful to the main character's viewpoint. Subtle changes in pacing, pitch and accent suitably define important secondary characters. Throughout, Guidall's gentle voice aptly conveys the damaged child's thoughts, feelings and intentions, often defiant or confused, occasionally wondrous or joyous. Emotionally powerful and heartrending, Guidall's narration will haunt the listener long after its conclusion. T.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
