The night that changes everything in Andy's life begins as a great time. His basketball team wins a big game, and he and his best friend have some cold brews stashed in the car, just waiting for the rolling party to begin. Nothing anyone can say or do afterwards will convince Andy that what happens next isn't his fault.

"Raw energy and intense emotion." (Publishers Weekly)
"An audiobook important to all collections for teens." (School Library Journal)
"The characters and their experiences will captivate [teens]. The novel is also suitable for use in curricular units dealing with alcohol abuse, suicide, and racism." (Booklist)
I think it helped my students in class, since many have difficulty reading.
The theme of the story is unique and I think this story by Sharon Draper stands on its own.
It was ok.
I was disappointed that for certain parts of the book, a male voice was playing the part of a female, vice versa and there were times when a single person narrated. You should have different voices for various characters and they should be consistent throughout the book and they should be the correct gender, as well as age. Meaning-the voice should sound like a teenage girl/guy.
This took away from the reading, but there were chapters that were done well, but this should be consistent throughout the entire book.
What I like about this audio is that it is more authentic than in the past when I have read this book aloud - I am deeply sounthern and white!
What I dislike about it is that while there were male and female readers, there were times when it should have been a male voice and it was female and vice versa
