9780141323282: Benny and Omar

In my old school, we had fighting, no pool and there'd be vicious matches against the other schools ...I miss all that stuff! Moving to Africa is the worst thing that has ever happened to Benny Shaw. No one plays hurling (the best game on the planet) and the local school is run by hippies who like to talk about feelings. As if. But when Benny meets wisecracking Omar (the name's Bond, James Bond Omar) who only speaks English in TV catchphrases, he decides that maybe life in this new country can be fun after all ...

About the Author:

Eoin Colfer was born and raised in Wexford, where he still lives with his wife and children. Artemis Fowl, his first book featuring the now world-famous young anti-hero, was an immediate international bestseller and won the WHSmith 'People's Choice' Children's Book of the Year and Children's Book of the Year at the British Book Awards. It was followed by five more hugely successful Artemis Fowl adventures, and well as the highly acclaimed The Supernaturalist, The Wish List, Half Moon Investigations and Airman.

From AudioFile:

Fans of Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl fantasy series, be forewarned. Colfer has moved into a new genre--realistic fiction. Benny Shaw, his parents, and younger brother, George, move from Ireland to Tunisia for Dad's job. Talk about culture shock! Euan Morton tells the story with heart and enthusiasm. His accent takes some getting used to, and some of the expressions are unfamiliar, but listeners willing to put forth the effort are in for a treat. Morton makes Benny believable as he grows from a sarcastic loner to a compassionate companion. Omar, a Tunisian homeless boy who speaks English in the language of sitcoms and commercials, befriends Benny and teaches him something about the value of friendship and sacrifice.
