With endless energy, verve, and style, Guy Lockard is a total superstar narrating Jason Reynolds’ Stuntboy, in the Meantime, a middle-grade novel about Portico Reeves, aka Stuntboy, supported by a full cast and a dynamic production. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss the newest audiobook from Reynolds, whose funny, smart, and empathetic writing meets kids where they are. Portico, voiced by Nile Bullock, loves living in his apartment building, but every time he catches his parents arguing, he feels “the frets.” So, he and his best friend Zola, voiced by Angel Pean, come up with his superhero alter ego who can help save his parents AND defeat their bully neighbor.
