Publisher's Summary

When Josie Jensen, an awkward 13-year-old musical prodigy, crashes headlong into newcomer Samuel Yazzie, an 18-year-old Navajo boy full of anger and confusion, an unlikely friendship blooms. Josie teaches Samuel about words, music, and friendship, and along the way finds a kindred spirit. Upon graduation, Samuel abandons the sleepy, small town in search of a future and a life, leaving his young mentor behind.

Many years go by and Samuel returns, finding his old friend in need of the very things she offered him years before. Their roles reversed, Samuel teaches Josie about life, love, and letting go. Deeply romantic and poignant, Running Barefoot is the story of a small-town girl and a Native American boy, the ties that bind them to their homes and families, and the love that gives them wings.

    What made the experience of listening to Running Barefoot the most enjoyable?

    The overall story is wonderful. The writing is beautiful. You get very invested in the characters and what they go through.


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    She did very well. The only decision I question in her performance was to emphasize the way Samuel spoke. She made him sound like someone who learned English as an older child, not someone who was raised bilingual. He didn't need an accent. Everything else was very well done.

    Love romance with a little bit of humor and suspense. A Thousand Splendid Suns is one of my favorite books.

    "I really like Amy Harmon..."

    I've been recommending books to my sister and this is one of them. Although I loved Making Faces, I thought this was a good listen. I think Gilbert is a great reader and her voice keeps you engaged in the story. I would definitely recommend it to someone who looking for more than a good love story with basic sexual attraction, but love affair that starts with friendship.
