Very emotional book!

Tranfers by Lucy Thurber is a play that has two college students trying to go to a high end University. They are traveling with a Counselor and we get to know them and their struggles. One is Latino and one is Black. There is limited openings in the school and in different areas. They are not competing against each other. When they get there they have an interview with different counselors and things go a lot differently than planned. Very emotional book. It was an Audible Original.

I could relate to every character.

So much of this story is my high-school and college years. I felt David when he said, Would you know how? Unless someone told you, would you know how?" A very necessary read.

Wow!

Almost quit when the first minute or so was a one-sided phone call...so glad I kept listening. Very moving and so well-acted.

Really enjoyed this book!

A great way to spend an hour and a half. Thought-provoking and entertaining, moving at a nice relaxed pace for such a short story. Actors played parts well - made story seem even more authentic. Good stuff.
