Editorial Reviews

Narrator P. J. Marino's intense performance is like a blow to the heart, as fierce as the ones given by high school senior and aspiring boxer Aiden O'Connor. Marino gives Aiden a tough, street-smart voice that hides within it a tremendous capacity for love and compassion. With the South Boston teen's father gone and his mother having difficulty finding work, he reluctantly gets mixed up with the Irish mob as an enforcer to help make ends meet. Marino lays bare Aiden's inner conflict as he becomes more and more enmeshed in the criminal world, and listeners will find themselves as torn up as he is over his choices.

Publisher's Summary

High school senior Aiden O'Connor's life is in turmoil. He's bored with school, his growing skill at boxing won't pay the rent when his drunken father leaves, and someone is keeping his mom from finding work in any pub in South Boston.
Lured by childhood friend Tommy's promise of easy money, Aiden reluctantly gets mixed up with the Irish mob. Aiden's strong sense of honor makes him a bit too good at his job with the King of the Street, who wants to keep Aiden involved for reasons of his own. Conflicted about nearly everything, Aiden has to decode where his loyalties lie - and when he has had enough.
Exploding with tough choices and the grit of true crime, A Kid from Southie is the story of one teen's dangerous trip through the temptations of power and the sacrifices that come with it on his way to deciding who he wants to be.
