Published by HarperAudio

John Green's The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor and Park in this darkly funny novel from the critically acclaimed author of The Beginning of Everything. Up until his diagnosis, Lane lived a fairly predictable life. But when he finds himself at a tuberculosis sanatorium called Latham House, he discovers an insular world with paradoxical rules, med sensors, and an eccentric yet utterly compelling confidante named Sadie - and life as Lane knows it will never be the same. Robyn Schneider's Extraordinary Means is a heart-wrenching yet ultimately hopeful story about the miracles of first love and second chances.

Extraordinary Means

Narrators Khristine Hvam and James Fouhey are well cast in their dual narration of the interwoven story of Lane and Sadie. In the not-so-distant future, a virulent strain of tuberculosis is sweeping the U.S., and the two teens have been confined to a residential facility. James Fouhey portrays the newly arrived Lane, defining him by his drive, wit, and innocence. In contrast, Khristine Hvam’s Sadie is sarcastic, jaded, and angry. Most of all, she’s angry with Lane for a wrong he never committed. But it’s not long before their truer emotions emerge, and the two are delighting in first love. Then comes the announcement of a possible cure—threatening everything. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
