Set in Kerrville, Kansas, The Center of Everything is told by Evelyn Bucknow, an endearing
character with a wholly refreshing way of looking at the world. Living with her
single mother in a small apartment, Evelyn Bucknow is a young girl wincing her
way through adolescence. With a voice that is as charming as it is
recognizable, Evelyn immerses the reader in the dramas of an entire community.
The people of Kerrville, stuck at once in the middle of nowhere but also at the
center of everything, are the source from which author Laura Moriarty draws on
universal dilemmas of love and belief to render a story that grows in emotional
intensity until it lifts the reader to heights achieved only by the finest of
fiction. Download and start listening now!
