First theres Will, an eighteen-year-old living alone since his mother died and his drug- and alcohol-addled brother went to jail. Then theres Kurt, a troubled fourteen-year-old loner still reeling after the death of his mothers abusive boyfriend and from his part in it. And finally theres Carrie, a middle-aged schizophrenic who hears the thoughts of the abused and neglected neighborhood animals she rescues. When Carrie and Kurt meet, she offers to pay him for each stray cat or dog he delivers. But when Carries rescuing goes too far, events spiral dangerously out of control. Told from alternating viewpoints, Listen is the haunting story of people thrown together by fate, each struggling to come to terms with their harrowing past.
