Listen up!

We just received a large order of teen audiobooks and there are some great titles here! This has always been a small collection for the Teen Zone (compared to our huge music CD collection!) so I'm trying to get the word out.

Here are just a handful of what's come in recently:

"Along for the Ride" by Sarah Dessen. "On a whim, Auden decides to spend the summer with her father and his family. Despite her desire to remain emotionally distant from the drama that is in the house, Auden finds herself lending her stepmother a reluctant hand. Rachel Botchan brings Auden to life. It is as if Auden herself is sharing the story of her summer over a cup of coffee in a late night diner." (review quoted from YALSA's Amazing Audiobooks list).

"Newes from the Dead" by Mary Hooper. "Anne Green regains consciousness at the beginning of her autopsy after being hanged for infanticide. Rosalyn Landor and Michael Page’s expert narrations capture this unusual and historically based story." (YALSA review).

"The Spectacular Now" by Tim Tharp. "Perpetually drunk and high on life, Sutter Keely struggles to maintain his “live in the now” mantra despite the changes that threaten his relaxed existence. Macleod Andrews’s drawl injects the reading with the happy go lucky, laid back charm that makes Sutter the guy everyone wants to hang with."

If you've never listened to an audiobook give it a try! A good audiobook can really bring a book to life, and it's a great way to make a road trip (or yardwork!) much more entertaining!
