Safekeeping

Karen Hesse, read by Jenna Lamia. Macmillan Audio, unabridged, four CDs, 4.5 hrs., $24.99 ISBN 978-1-4272-2720-1
Seventeen-year-old Radley is out of the country when the American People’s Party rises and the United States explodes into chaos with government crackdowns, riots, and vigilante posses. She immediately returns home to Vermont, only to find her parents missing and the police pursuing her. Radley heads north for Canada where she hopes to find refuge, learning about survival and friendship along the way. Narrator Jenna Lamia delivers an entertaining, top-notch performance; her reading of this first-person tale is crisp and well paced, and she proves completely convincing playing a maturing teenage girl, lending Radley a youthful voice that is soothing and earnest. Because of the quality narration, the audiobook is compelling throughout. Ages 12–up. A Feiwel and Friends hardcover. (Sept.)
