SYNC Audiobooks: Week 4

SyncBannerThis summer, SYNC will be providing two free teen audiobooks each week from May 5th to August 11th. Each week will focus on a specific theme, pairing a classic YA title with a more modern one. This week starts Thursday, May 26th with Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone and Egg and Spoon by Gregory Maguire. These two titles will be available to download for free this week only (from 5/26 to 6/02) at the SYNC website. The theme for this second week is “Girls raise voices strong enough to shed light–or darkness.”

every-last-word

Amy Rubinate invites listeners to enter the inner and outer worlds of 16-year-old Samantha McAllister. Rubinate conveys Sam’s anxiety as she curries favor with a clique-ish set of friends and their mean-girl leader. She dramatizes Sam’s inner struggles as she hides her compulsive behaviors, finding her stress relieved only by competitive swimming and comforting discussions with her therapist. Sam’s life begins to change on the first day of her junior year when a mysterious student introduces her to the Poet’s Corner, a secret room where student share poetry and music. There Sam finds artistic freedom, love, friendship—and a problem more frightening than any she’s faced before. Rubinate’s characterizations and a surprising ending enhance this story. The library owns this in both book and ebook format.

egg-and-spoon

Set in tsarist Russia, this story combines historical fiction and folklore and is told by a self-proclaimed “unreliable scribe” who writes from within a tower prison. Narrator Michael Page creates two girls—an earnest and believable Elena and a youthful, cultured Ekaterina—one peasant, the other privileged, yet so alike that their lives are exchanged with little notice. Great Aunt Sophia is haughty and imperious, while her mirror character, Baba Yaga the witch, is a capricious mix of lunacy, joy, and menace. Page especially shines as the story’s narrator. The character may be unreliable, but we believe his aged and patrician voice and hang on to his every measured word as he challenges us to ponder the nature of fate. The library owns this in book, CD audiobook, and Playaway formats.

Explode Your Holds List with Realistic Fiction!

explodeyourholdsHere’s what’s new in Realistic Fiction this month:

the-hatersThe Haters by Jesse Andrews
Inspired by the years he spent playing bass in a band himself, The Haters is Andrews’s road trip adventure about a trio of jazz-camp escapees who, against every realistic expectation, become a band. For Wes and his best friend, Corey, jazz camp turns out to be lame. It’s pretty much all dudes talking in Jazz Voice. But then they jam with Ash, a charismatic girl with an unusual sound, and the three just click. It’s three and a half hours of pure musical magic, and Ash makes a decision: They need to hit the road. Because the road, not summer camp, is where bands get good. Before Wes and Corey know it, they’re in Ash’s SUV heading south, and The Haters Summer of Hate Tour has begun.

some-of-the-parts

Some of the Parts by Hannah Barnaby
ORGAN DONOR: Two words that had apparently been checked off on her brother’s driver’s license; two words that her parents knew about–and never revealed to her. All at once, everything Tallie thought she understood about her brother’s death feels like a lie. And although a part of her knows he’s gone forever, another part of her wonders if finding the letter might be a sign. That if she can just track down the people on the other end of those two words, it might somehow bring him back. This deeply moving novel asks questions there are no easy answers to as it follows a family struggling to pick up the pieces, and a girl determined to find the brother she wasn’t ready to let go of.

tell-me-three-thingsTell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum
It’s been barely two years since her mother’s death, and because her father eloped with a woman he met online, Jessie has been forced to move across the country to live with her stepmonster and her pretentious teenage son. Just when she’s thinking about hightailing it back to Chicago, she gets an email from a person calling themselves Somebody/Nobody (SN for short), offering to help her navigate the wilds of Wood Valley High School. In a leap of faith–or an act of complete desperation–Jessie begins to rely on SN, and SN quickly becomes her lifeline and closest ally. Jessie can’t help wanting to meet SN in person. But are some mysteries better left unsolved?

peas-and-carrotsPeas and Carrots by Tanita S. Davis
Dess knows that nothing good lasts. Disappointment is never far away, and that’s a truth she has learned to live with. Dess’s mother’s most recent arrest is just the latest in a long line of disappointments, but this one lands her with her baby brother’s foster family. Dess doesn’t exactly fit in with the Carters. They’re so happy, so comfortable, so normal, and Hope, their teenage daughter, is so hopelessly naïve. Over time their differences, insurmountable at first, fall away to reveal two girls who want the same thing: to belong. Davis, a Coretta Scott King Honor winner, weaves a tale of two modern teenagers defying stereotypes and deciding for themselves what it means to be a family.

girl-in-the-blue-coatGirl in the Blue Coat by Monica Hesse
Beautifully written, intricately plotted, and meticulously researched, Girl in the Blue Coat is an extraordinary, gripping novel from a bright new voice. In 1943 Nazi-occupied Amsterdam, teenage Hanneke–a ‘finder’ of black market goods–is tasked with finding a Jewish girl a customer had been hiding, who has seemingly vanished into thin air, and is pulled into a web of resistance activities and secrets as she attempts to solve the mystery and save the missing girl. An unforgettable story of bravery, grief, and love in impossible times.

when-we-collidedWhen We Collided by Emery Lord
17 year-old Jonah Daniels has lived in Verona Cove, CA, his whole life, and only one thing has ever changed: his father used to be alive, and now he’s not. With a mother lost in a deep bout of depression, Jonah and his five siblings struggle to keep up their home and the restaurant their dad left behind. Then he meets Vivi, the new girl in town. In love with life, charming and unfiltered, she refuses to be held down by the medicine she’s told should make her feel better. But it’s not long before her zest for life begins to falter. Soon her adventurousness becomes all-out danger-seeking. Through each high and low, Vivi and Jonah’s love is put to the test . . . but what happens when love simply isn’t enough?

seven-ways-we-lieSeven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate
A chance encounter tangles the lives of seven high school students, each resisting the allure of one of the seven deadly sins, and each telling their story from their seven distinct points of view. Rumors of a student-teacher affair hit the fan. After Juniper accidentally exposes her secret at a party, her fate falls into the hands of the other six sinners, bringing them into one another’s orbits. All seven are guilty of something. Together, they could save one another from their temptations–or be ruined by them. This twisty YA debut effortlessly weaves humor, heartbreak, and redemption into a drama that fans of Jenny Han and Stephanie Perkins will adore.

the-way-i-used-to-beThe Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith
Told in four parts–freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior year–this provocative debut reveals the deep cuts of trauma. But it also demonstrates one young woman’s strength as she navigates the disappointment and unbearable pains of adolescence, of first love and first heartbreak, of friendships broken and rebuilt, and while learning to embrace a power of survival she never knew she had hidden within her heart.

 

the-new-guyThe New Guy (And Other Senior Year Distractions) by Amy Spalding
Filled with romance, rivalry, and passive-aggressive dog walking, this is a hilariously relatable story about how even the best-laid plans sometimes need to be rewritten. What’s the only thing that could derail overachiever Jules’s perfect senior year? Alex Powell–former boy-band sensation and newest transfer to Eagle Vista Academy. He seems cool enough when he starts spending time with Jules. And he turns out to be quite the romantic (not to mention a killer kisser). After getting over the initial shock that someone like Alex might actually like like her, Jules accepts that having a boyfriend could be a nice addition to her packed schedule. That is, until Alex commits the ultimate betrayal, which threatens to ruin her high school career, and possibly her entire future. This. Means. War.

the-last-boy-and-girl-in-the-worldThe Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian
What if your town was sliding underwater and everyone was ordered to pack up and leave? How would you and your friends spend your last days together? While the adults plan for the future, box up their possessions, and find new places to live, Keeley Hewitt and her friends decide to go out with a bang. There are parties in abandoned houses. Canoe races down Main Street. The goal is to make the most of every minute they still have together. And for Keeley, that means taking one last shot at the boy she’s loved forever. There’s a weird sort of bravery that comes from knowing there’s nothing left to lose. It’s the end of Aberdeen, but the beginning of Keeley’s first love story. 

scar-girlScar Girl by Len Vlahos
When The Scar Boys ended, the band has fallen apart. Harry and Johnny are barely speaking, and Cheyenne is feeling desperate about Johnny, who has retreated into silence. It’s only through their music that the group is able to rebuild their relationships, and they slowly begin to reach musical success and fame. In
Scar Girl, Cheyenne, Harry, and Richie tell their own stories as they discover the ups and downs of being rock musicians–including meltdowns on stage, too much drinking, keeping secrets that should be shared, and having fights that test the limits of their friendship. The band’s reputation grows and grows, but will the kids themselves survive?

SYNC Audiobooks: Week 3

SyncBanner

This week’s SYNC books feature two boys and their different roads to manhood with some rough patches along the way. As usual, one is fiction and the other is nonfiction.

100SidewaysMilesThe first book is 100 Sideways Miles written by Andrew Smith and read by Kirby Heybourne. It features sixteen year old Finn Easton. Finn Easton sees the world through miles instead of minutes. It’s how he makes sense of the world, and how he tries to convince himself that he’s a real boy and not just a character in his father’s bestselling cult-classic book. Finn has two things going for him: his best friend, the possibly-insane-but-definitely-excellent Cade Hernandez, and Julia Bishop, the first girl he’s ever loved. Then Julia moves away, and Finn is heartbroken. Feeling restless and trapped in the book, Finn embarks on a road trip with Cade to visit their college of choice in Oklahoma. When an unexpected accident happens and the boys become unlikely heroes, they take an eye-opening detour away from everything they thought they had planned—and learn how to write their own destiny. The library owns the book and the audiobook in addition to the SYNC option.

 

ThisBoysLifeThe second book this week is This Boy’s Life written by Tobias Wolff and read by Oliver Wyman. This book is the author’s memoir which was originally published in 1989. This launched a whole memoir craze in the publishing world and was then made into a movie in 1993. The story is pretty grim: Teenage Tobias Wolff moves with his divorced mother from Florida to Utah to Washington State to escape her violent boyfriend. When she remarries, Wolff finds himself in a bitter battle of wills with his abusive stepfather, a contest in which the two prove to be more evenly matched than might have been supposed. Deception, disguise, and illusion are the weapons the young man learns to employ as he grows up—not bad training for a writer-to-be. Somber though this tale of family strife is, it is also darkly funny and so artistically satisfying that listeners come away exhilarated. Unfortunately, the Algonquin Area Public Library District does not own this book, however you can always place the book or the audiobook on hold and have it sent here from another library.
