Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of Mosquitoland brings us another batch of unforgettable characters in this tragicomedy about first love and devastating loss. 

Victor Benucci and Madeline Falco have a story to tell. 

It begins with the death of Vic's father. 

It ends with the murder of Mad's uncle. 

The Hackensack Police Department would very much like to hear it. 

But in order to tell their story, Vic and Mad must focus on all the chapters in between. 

This is a story about: 

1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.
2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.
3. One dormant submarine.
4. Two songs about flowers.
5. Being cool in the traditional sense.
6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.
7. Simultaneous extreme opposites.
8. A narrow escape from a war-torn country.
9. A story collector.
10. How to listen to someone who does not talk.
11. Falling in love with a painting.
12. Falling in love with a song.
13. Falling in love.  

Cast of narrators:
Vic read by Michael Crouch
Mad read by Phoebe Strole
Baz read by Ryan Vincent Anderson 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Very good also very emotional

I love this book. I I struggled to finish because of how emotional it was at some points.
The most memorable parts of this book for were in the first chapter and the last chapter.
The narration in this audio book is superb.

If you don't mind books that are very emotional I would recommend it.
When it comes to reviews I'm kind of a sideways hug, so I'm going to end it right here.

Amazing Characters and a wonderful performance

I enjoyed the story of this unique group of characters. The use of multiple voice actors really made listening to the story an engaging experience. The character of Coco alone makes it worth the listen. The plot is interesting, but the characters make the story.
