ALA Booklist
The Bronze Bow, set in Galilee during biblical times, is a story of a young Jewish rebel who, after witnessing his father's crucifixion, is drawn to the teachings of Jesus. Although Wood's unadorned reading doesn't add needed spice to the tale, the audiobook should appeal to historical fiction fans. Santiago-Hudson's stirring, husky reading of The Land, (winner of the 2002 Coretta Scott King Award), the prequel to Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry (1976), fills in pieces of family history by telling how the Logans came to own their land and how the biracial protagonist struggles for acceptance, even within the black community. Ritter's dynamic reading of Stargirl captures every nuance of the characters in this frighteningly accurate portrait of high-school culture and the in group. The plot involves a teenager who is suddenly shunned for being a nonconformist. Performed brilliantly by the St. Charles Players, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea energizes Verne's classic for today's children. Music interludes and sound effects punctuate the spine-tingling adventure. --Patricia Austin This stellar collection of winning titles for children and young adults features six ALA Notable 2002 picks.
