Publisher's Summary

From the Newbery Award-winning author of Across Five Aprils and Up a Road Slowly comes a tale of a brave young man’s struggle to find his own strength during the Great Depression.
In 1932, Americans’ dreams were simple: a job, food to eat, a place to sleep, and shoes without holes. But for millions of people these simple needs were nothing more than dreams. When he was just 15 years old, Josh had to make his own way through a country of angry and frightened people. This is the story of his struggle to find a life for himself during those turbulent times.

good writing, horrible narration

I will not listen to anything else from thise narrarator. The blandness of his voice was like a blanket over the storyline. His female characters were so obnoxious, I was on the verge of forwarding over it. Only my respect for authors and stories stopped me. It also seems the audible is much longer than it should be for the size novel that it is; maybe its the tone, maybe its the pace

I love this book. Listened in the car. Beautiful story, beautifully read. Couldn't wait to get to the next "aural" page.
