Written as a radio play, this is an inventive and creative book. The story perfectly matches the form.
Rob is a senior in high school who has never known his dad. His father was a DJ and left him a recording of his radio show. Over the years, young Rob used to search the air waves, using equipment to reach farther and farther, hoping to hear his father’s voice.
The book is presented as a class project that Rob put together to explain the themes of his life. At first, the many voices were confusing, but soon the ideas come together and we’re caught up with the story. An ambitious group of young people could make an excellent production of this book. A fascinating and well-crafted story.Thanks to Dr. Davis for recommending this one to me!
