Publisher's Summary

He was a little boy when they came. He couldn't remember much before it all changed. All he knew were the concentration camps, and the loudspeakers that spoke every day, saying, "We are here because we love you. Your planet will become a paradise."

If that was the case, then why were the weak eaten in the dark?

    Story
    "Audible Version Brings This Story to Life"
    What did you love best about You Can't Be Twelve Forever?

    I first read this story when it was available as an e-book on Amazon. Now that there is an audio book for "You Can't Be Twelve Forever," it brings the story to life in a whole new way.


    Which character – as performed by Derwin Gerald Lester II – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the voice used for the announcement from the ones taking over this planet the most; however, I thought all of the voices were good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    "Haunting Little Story"
    Would you listen to You Can't Be Twelve Forever again? Why?

    Yes. "You Can't Be Twelve Forever" presents the reader with enough information to understand the world that the author has created, but leaving plenty unknown to draw you back in.


    What does Derwin Gerald Lester II bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    There is a detached quality. Like someone who has been so beaten down by the traumatic circumstances that they cannot get too worked up any more.


    Any additional comments?

    There were audible breaks in between takes. I think they could be covered up with a little more editing, or even a music backing.
