Something Rising (Light and Swift)
- By: Haven Kimmel
- Narrated by: Chelsey Rives
- Length: 7 hrs and 36 mins
Cassie Claiborne's world is riddled with problems beyond her control: her hard-living father has another wife; her stoic, long-suffering mother is incapable of moving herself mentally away from the kitchen window; her closest friends, Puck and Emmy, are adolescent harbingers of their own doomed futures. Frustrated by her inability to care deeply enough for so many troubled souls, Cassie finds in the local pool hall an oasis of green felt where she can master objects and restrain her emotions.
Everything about this is outstanding

Reading as good as the writing
I would have enjoyed reading this book by Haven Kimmell. But having it read to me by Christy Reaves was part of my great enjoyment of this book. I loved listening to her interpretation of the characters' speech. It was like listening to a one person play with dozens of characters. This was the first time I enjoyed the narrator as much as the book.
