Description-

  • Schneider Family Award for Teen Fiction
    YALSA Amazing Audiobooks for Young Adults
    YALSA Best Books for Young Adults: Top 10
    An intense and heartwarming story of finding love and finding yourself.

    Marcelo Sandoval hears music that nobody else can hear—part of an autism-like condition that no doctor has been able to identify. But his father has never fully believed in the music or Marcelo's differences, and he challenges Marcelo to work in the mailroom of his law firm for the summer. There Marcelo meets the beautiful and surprising Jasmine, and things start to take a different turn.
    Praise for Francisco Stork:
    "[Stork's writing is] as if John Updike had rewritten Gabriel Garcia Marquez."—Publishers Weekly

About the Author-

  • Francisco Stork studied Latin American literature at Harvard before completing a law degree at Columbia University. Publishers Weekly praised his first novel The Way of the Jaguar, as "a splendidly intense debut." His second book, Behind the Eyes, was selected as both a Commended title for the Americas Award and a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine What a marvelous story! Narrator Lincoln Hoppe finds his way into this teen's struggle with Asperger's syndrome with a soft hesitancy that's at once appealing and believable. Seventeen-year-old Marcelo must work in his father's law office for the summer in order to return to the special needs school where he feels so comfortable. Dad is about to get more than he bargained for. Hoppe breezes through the myriad situations encountered by this unusual young man in the intense environment of a Boston legal firm while capturing Marcelo's innocence with a delicate subtlety that remains pitch perfect throughout. Part love story, part legal drama, the story of Marcelo features an old-fashioned search for justice that will make listeners stand up and cheer. D.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
