9780007511235: Tape

TAPE is an outstanding debut. Told with crackling prose, shimmering with humour and deeply moving, it will haunt anyone who reads it...

Record a voice and it lasts forever...

In 1993, Ryan records a diary on an old tape. He talks about his mother’s death, about his dreams, about his love for a new girl at school who doesn’t even know he exists.

In 2013, Ameliah moves in with her grandmother after her parents die. There, she finds a tape in the spare room. A tape with a boy’s voice on it – a voice she can’t quite hear, but which seems to be speaking to her.

Ryan and Ameliah are connected by more than just a tape.

This is their story.

About the Author:

Steven Camden is a leading spoken-word poet, performing as Polarbear. He also writes radio plays, teaches storytelling in schools, and was a lead artist for The Ministry of Stories. TAPE is his first novel. When you read it, you will find this hard to believe.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up—Ameliah and Ryan are two English teens who have a lot in common. Both of them have recently experienced the loss of their parents and both are obsessed with cassette tapes. Ameliah is desperate to remain connected to her parents, and knows that they loved music, so she is trying to listen to all of their old favorites. Ryan is recording tapes so he can feel close to his mother. Ryan's world is changing fast and it's getting harder for him to recall what made his mother so special. He's having a hard time getting along with his new stepbrother and his father is preoccupied with his new marriage. On one particularly difficult day, Ryan is recording a new tape and hears a voice talk back to him. As Ameliah records a tape, she also hears a stranger's voice talking to her through her ancient tape player. After this fortuitous meeting, Ryan's and Ameliah's stories of love and loss intertwine in delightful (and heartrending) ways. The star-crossed teens' tale is touching, but overwrought. Younger teens will like the many twists and turns, but older readers will have a hard time suspending their disbelief long enough for this novel to hit home.—Morgan Brickey, Marion County Public Library System, FL
