Things We Do in the Dark

Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

Elaina Erika Davis displays astonishing range in her seemingly effortless transitions among a variety of languages and accents in her narration of this Newbery winner. The story is told in the first person from the point of view of Katie Takeshima, a Japanese-American girl growing up in Georgia in the 1950s. Listeners will be spellbound as Katie copes with her older sister's leukemia and bears witness to prejudice, a fledgling union movement, and economic hardship. Davis portrays characters as varied as an elderly Japanese-American man and a Southern girl with equal conviction. She gives a flawless, expressive performance that doesn't call attention to itself, allowing listeners to become engrossed in a fascinating and moving story. A.F.

As a child, Cynthia Kadohata’s biggest life goal was not to be a writer. It was to own a dog. Since then, she has had six rescue dogs as her best friends. And, she has been extremely fortunate to have mostly worked as a writer during her adult life. She is the author of ten children’s books, including Kira-Kira, winner of the Newbery Medal; The Thing About Luck, winner of the National Book Award; Weedflower, winner of the Jane Addams Peace Award; Cracker, winner of six state awards as voted on by kids; A Place to Belong, longlisted for the National Book Award; and the upcoming Saucy, about a piglet like millions of others, yet also TOTALLY herself.
