When severely dyslexic Brandon Vanderkool is forced to join the Border Patrol, he learns the border is a haven for illegal drug smugglers and other criminals. Meanwhile, disease has struck his father's herd, and his mother is battling something even more debilitating. Each will have to fight for hope in a world changing too fast.

I loved Border Songs. It is unusual, and it is delightfully so. The "hero" is truly heroic. If you are a birdwatcher, you will chirp with delight. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
Jim Lynch has a special voice as a writer, and the narrator captured it very well. Please do give this book a listen. I'm looking forward to Lynch's third novel, due out soon.
