Description-

  • "This magical audiobook echoes the desire to truly understand yourself and be seen as you are, and the twist ending will leave listeners stunned." -AudioFile Magazine

    This program is read by the author.

    A debut YA novel-in-verse by Amber McBride, Me (Moth) is about a teen girl who is grieving the deaths of her family, and a teen boy who crosses her path.
    Moth has lost her family in an accident. Though she lives with her aunt, she feels alone and uprooted.
    Until she meets Sani, a boy who is also searching for his roots. If he knows more about where he comes from, maybe he'll be able to understand his ongoing depression. And if Moth can help him feel grounded, then perhaps she too will discover the history she carries in her bones.
    Moth and Sani take a road trip that has them chasing ghosts and searching for ancestors. The way each moves forward is surprising, powerful, and unforgettable.
    Here is an exquisite and uplifting novel about identity, first love, and the ways that our memories and our roots steer us through the universe.
    A Macmillan audio production from Feiwel & Friends

    June 28, 2021
    Two years after a devastating car accident killed her family as they drove from New York to northern Virginia, aspiring dancer Moth, the Black granddaughter of a Hoodoo root worker, is still navigating the accident’s fallout, which includes a mark on her face “as crisp as the tip of a whip from jaw to eye.” Poignant free verse details her resignation to a “bland” existence in the suburbs, where she’s ignored by classmates and her aunt Jack, who has developed an alcohol reliance. When a new student—talented Navajo musician Sani—shows up in her junior homeroom class, Moth finds a kindred spirit whose similarly painful past and physically abusive stepfather compound his depression. Desperate for a change, Moth and Sani embark on a road trip out west to the Navajo Nation, where Sani’s biological father lives. As the two travel, visiting national landmarks that connect them to the ghosts of their ancestors, a tender love story unfolds, one that debut author McBride skillfully renders while covering serious topics such as grief and mental health, including suicidal ideation. Ages 12–up. Agent: Rena Rossner, Deborah Harris Literary.

  • AudioFile Magazine Author and narrator Amber McBride gently delivers this audiobook in verse. Moth suffers from loneliness after losing her family in a car crash. Her aunt and classmates ignore her, but the new boy, Sani, sees her entirely, and the spark between the two is undeniable. McBride's leisurely pace and deliberate rhythm add a lyrical quality that carries listeners through the journey of two teenagers with inattentive families who are desperate to connect with their roots. Moments of particular emotional intensity swell with gentle musical accents, suggestive of Sani's musical talent and Moth's dancing skills. This magical audiobook echoes the desire to truly understand yourself and be seen as you are, and the twist ending will leave listeners stunned. A.K.R. � AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine
