Publisher's Summary

In this coming-of-age debut audiobook from Tyler James Smith, a 17-year-old boy has one week in the aftermath of a disastrous prank to prove to the authorities, and to himself, that he’s not a worthless jerk who belongs in jail. 

Moses and his cousin Charlie were best friends, wisecracking pranksters, unstoppable forces of teenage energy - until the night they became accidental arsonists and set in motion a chain of events that left Moses alone, guilt-stricken, and most likely trapped in his dead-end town. 

Then Moses gets a lucky break: the chance to volunteer as a camp counselor for a week and prove the incident at the bowling alley should be expunged from his record. And since a criminal record and enrollment at Duke are mutually exclusive, he’s determined to get through his community service and get on with his life. But tragedy seems to follow him wherever he goes, and this time, it might just stop him in his tracks.  

“When people say reading makes us more empathetic, they are talking about books like Unstoppable Moses by Tyler James Smith. A lyrical, hilarious, so-real-it-hurts debut that reminds us all just how much we have to lose, and why it’s important to never give up. I’m so happy this book is in the world.” (Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock, Morris Honor-winning author of The Smell of Other People’s Houses)

Great Debut YA Novel

Tyler J Smith uses his skills as a writer to keep the listener/reader turning pages. Witty. Funny. And an overall good read. Characters are well developed - the reader can connect with them. I want a friend like Charlie, Maddie, Faisal, or Mike.

Excellent story

I honestly didn't plan on listening to the entire story... But as I listened on, I found myself not wanting to put it down. I had to find out the ending! Each character was so we'll developed that I felt like I knew them. Tyler's descriptives are generous and the characters believable. I highly recommend this book, especially to those who find themselves in situations that may be less than ideal....
