Quaking | [Kathryn Erskine]

Quaking

Don't call her Matilda. Her name is Matt. And don't even think about getting close to her. She doesn't need anyone. Can't you tell by looking at her, dressed all in black with a spider painted on her face and her ice-cold stare? But most of all, do not bully her. She has been through it all already.

Publisher's Summary

Don't call her Matilda. Her name is Matt. And don't even think about getting close to her. She doesn't need anyone. Can't you tell by looking at her, dressed all in black with a spider painted on her face and her ice-cold stare? But most of all, do not bully her. She has been through it all already.

But everything changes for 14-year-old Matt when she moves in with peaceful Quakers Sam and Jessica Fox, who are active in the movement against the war in the Middle East.

Soon, conflict arises in town over the war, and suddenly, no one is safe. Matt fears for her safety and the safety of her new family. Could the boy who terrorizes her at school be behind it all? And how can she save the family she is actually growing to love when her fear always leaves her quaking?

What the Critics Say

"Idealistic teens will be interested in Matt's growing acceptance of her new family, of Quaker values, and of her need to take action, rather than simply observe." (Booklist)

    "Great voice!"

    As the author, I want to commend Rena Strober for doing such a wonderful job of capturing Matt's voice! Thanks, Rena! Check out the sample and see if you agree.

    Peace,
    Kathy

    "A great listen"
    Where does Quaking rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best I've listened to by an author who was new to me


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Quaking?

    I loved it when it dawns on Matt that she has gifts and talents and is capable of being loved


    What does Rena Strober bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I loved the way Strober built tension and emotion into her narration


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and cry at different stages


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to listen to more by both author and narrator
