Nickel Plated | [Aric Davis]

Nickel Plated

Nickel is a survivor. Raised by the state in abusive foster homes, he escapes at the age of ten to live his life the way his father wanted him to: not as a civilian, but as a warrior. Nickel pays his way by blackmailing pedophiles he tracks down online, selling marijuana to high school students, and working as a private investigator in between. Money talks, but for kids, Nickel works for free. This time, it’s Arrow, a beautiful high school girl, who needs help.

Publisher's Summary

Nickel is a survivor. Raised by the state in abusive foster homes, he escapes at the age of ten to live his life the way his father wanted him to: not as a civilian, but as a warrior. Nickel pays his way by blackmailing pedophiles he tracks down online, selling marijuana to high school students, and working as a private investigator in between. Money talks, but for kids, Nickel works for free. This time, it’s Arrow, a beautiful high school girl, who needs help. She believes that her sister Shelby was kidnapped, even though her parents and the police have written her off as a runaway. Nickel takes the case, scouring the internet and the posh suburban streets to find the missing girl. What he uncovers are children for sale and adults with souls black as the devil. Soon Nickel realizes that finding Shelby is one thing - but surviving is another.

    What did you love best about Nickel Plated?

    It has a great storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    It left me wanting more at the end and therefore, feels like there should be a sequel.

    Story
    "The world needs more people like Nickel"

    While this may be marketed as a Young Adult novel, Nickel Plated is a great read for anyone. A nice change of pace from the vampires and dystopion novels that have saturated that category as of late. I don't normally give out such high marks across the board for an author I've never erad before but this one deserves them. By no means a lengthy story its still rich in characters and moving. The narrator Nick Podehl is a new one for me and I thought he did a comendable job on the variety of voices, accents, and ages.

    Story
    "I love Nickel"
    What made the experience of listening to Nickel Plated the most enjoyable?

    Nickel is the kind of kid I would have loved to have as a friend when I was young. I wanted to take care of him and give him a big hug. I love that the author didn't write him as an idiot just because he is a child. This book screams the praise of smart kids everywhere.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There isn't one bit that's better than the rest.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not. He was a good choice for the narrator though. His voice had the right cadence for the character. His performance was seamless.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listened in two sittings.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love a sequel. PLEASE!!!!!!
