  1. Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You

    “I really enjoyed this audiobook, and was lucky enough to meet Jason Reynolds at Winter Institute 2020, and he said he hopes this book helps all of us have a full knowledge and a frank discussion about race in America. Reynolds is an engaging narrator, and he deftly reads this remix of Ibram X. Kendi's National Book Award winning Stamped From the Beginning. I learned a great deal from this book, and I have been studying American history my whole life. Reynolds' book will allow adults to educate middle readers -- and all of us -- about the true legacy of America's past, and where we go from here. An absolutely essential book. I can't recommend it highly enough, and am grateful to Kendi and Reynolds for providing an accessible telling of the great irony of the premise on the American truth that all men are created equal.”

  2. Children of Blood and Bone

    “A sprawling fantasy teeming with deep and meaningful magic. One of the things I like most about this debut is that it raises very real and important issues of our time through multiple character's perspectives. No character is one-dimensional, and every character must learn from failure and introspection to become who they were meant to be.”

  3. Sadie

    “This book made me cry. I felt so deeply for Sadie as she goes in search of the man who hurt her sister. Sadie goes on a journey from place to place, fighting against her severe stutter along the way, all to find one man. I think the framing of this story was PERFECT. The author splits the narrative between a radio presenter, West McCray, as he investigates Sadie’s disappearance, and the first person perspective of Sadie herself, as she hunts down her sister’s killer. If you like gripping, emotional reads, don't miss this one.”

  4. The Poet X

    “Getting to listen to the author herself read her poetry, which are clearly a testament to the spoken word and the art of slam, is absolutely the best way to devour this novel-in-verse. Acevedo puts everything into her words, and no one else could do them justice the way she does herself. Despite possible age/cultural/religious differences, any listener will immediately relate to this teenage girl desperately trying to both find herself and her voice, and live up to her family's expectations.”

  6. By Angie Thomas / Narrated by Bahni Turpin

    The Hate U Give

    “This bestselling, powerful young adult novel about social justice and one teen girl's effort to fight for what is right, will leave you breathless. The narration by Bahni Turpin is hands down the best I've ever heard. This is such an important book it should be required reading for life in general. Or listening. Definitely listening.”

  7. By Libba Bray / Narrated by January LaVoy

    The Diviners

    “The glamorous, ghoulish 1920's New York City setting and spine-tingling thrills will draw you in from the start. However, it's the varied cast of characters - brassy, smart, complex, hilarious, flawed, and just so achingly REAL - that steal the show. I can't put this series down, and with each book it just gets better and better. The narrator, January LaVoy, is just brilliant and does justice to each and every character. She has amazing range!!”

  18. The Grace Year

    “The Grace Year is a brutal, feminist gut-punch of a book that grips you tight and never lets go. Ugly crying will happen and readers are likely to get some serious lockjaw from gritting their teeth in suspense. Narrator Emily Shaffer nuanced performance of main character Tierney James is unforgettable, as she captures each little passive aggressive snipe, every accidental slip of the tongue, and all the fraught emotions that come with being a teenage girl. The comparisons to tense-reading favorites, The Handmaid's Tale and Lord of the Flies, are accurate and certainly well-earned.”

  22. By Melissa Albert / Narrated by Rebecca Soler

    The Hazel Wood

    “THE HAZEL WOOD is totally captivating. This modern day fairy tale is smart, funny, and clever. Alice Proserpine is a heroine I'd like to buy a cup of coffee. I highly recommend it!”

  23. Sorcery of Thorns

    “Amazing! I wonderful fantasy I loved every bit of. The narrator brought this story to life, and I was hypnotized the entire time. This story has some of my favorite elements in it. A strong, smart heroine? Check. A charming hero with demons and a chip on his shoulder? Check. An evil threatening the safety of the world? Check. Elizabeth is such an interesting character, she is determined and clever and she has approximately no quit in her. Despite all of the things that stand in her way, she never says die. When she is forced to choose between the person she has always been, and sacrificing all she knows about herself to help save a clueless, thankless world, she becomes someone new. Part of this is because of Nathaniel. He embodies everything she has learned to avoid and fear. But the world she lives in is bigger than the fears she has been taught. Nathaniel is mysterious and tortured. Elizabeth is everything he doesn't want to need, and he rebels against that. Their partnership progresses naturally, slowly and arduously as they wrestle with what is happening. By the end of the book they have complete confidence in each other and I reveled in every stage of their relationship. Give me the slow burn partnership that neither wants, but works so well. I'll love it every time. Margaret Rogerson is amazing and this book HAD me from the very beginning.”

  24. Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow

    “A deliciously delightful and utterly enchanting debut sure to dazzle fans of the Harry Potter series, “Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow,” by Jessica Townsend, caught me from the very first chapter. I absolutely couldn’t put this gem down after meeting Morrigan, a cursed child destined to die at midnight on her eleventh birthday. Complete with monsters lurking in the shadows, a Magnificat named Fenestra and the magical city, Nevermoor, home of the Wundrous Society, Townsends tale is a treasure for all ages and will leave you longing for more. Will Morrigan figure out her talent in time to save herself from the wicked Wundersmith or is she doomed to die a dark death and disappear for all time? Fantastically fun and fast paced read…I loved it!! Read by Gemma Whelan, you'll be anxiously awaiting the next installment "Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow due out in late November.”

  25. By Neil Gaiman / Narrated by Neil Gaiman

    Fortunately, the Milk

    “Looking for a fantastic audiobook that will keep your whole family entertained? Look no further than this beautiful example of humor and imaginative storytelling from none other than Neil Gaiman himself. At 58 minutes long, it was short enough for my four-year-old to tune in and get the humor, and long and detailed enough to hold the attention and entertain the 9-, 6- and 40-year-olds who were also along for the ride. I highly recommend this great tale.”

  27. Sea Witch

    “Here is a beautiful tale that blends and twists the unique elements of an origin story and a retelling into one. While Henning’s novel subtly incorporates many elements from Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid," she twists and molds these details into new shapes that form a story that takes on a life of its own and sweetly whispers notes of love, betrayal, and tragedy into your ear. This book completely took me by surprise in the best way possible. The story builds upon itself getting better and better without losing momentum until it ends with a beautiful crash of everything falling into place at the end. I loved the story and while it broke my heart I can only praise how it was done. The way the chapters bounced back and forth with the time line to slowly reveal things was so good! There is a certain moment that will make it impossible for you to stop reading or listening and I can’t wait for it to find you. This review is for the audiobook edition on Libro.fm, for which the narrator, Billie Fulford-Brown, did a splendid job.”

  28. Of Curses and Kisses

    “This funny and charming story is the feel-good romance I needed right now.”

    Owosso Books & Beans image Lydia, Owosso Books & Beans
  29. Dry

    “Dry by Neal Shusterman is frightening it its reality. Set in modern day California with a simple thought—what if southern California were to wake up one day, turn on the water faucet to discover that there was NO WATER in the taps. Not absurd at all. Shusterman takes us through a week of “TAP OUT” with a cast of teens in which we see the very best and the very worst of humanity. Enough humor and kindness are interjected to relive some of the tension, but the ugly side of mankind is shown as well. Chilling and very realistic!”

  30. By Maureen Johnson / Narrated by Kate Rudd

    The Hand on the Wall

    “A spectacular end to an already fantastic trilogy! I listened to the majority of the audiobook in a single day, having been hooked by the previous two nearly a year ago. When I ran out of things to do while listening, I simply sat and took it in because I NEEDED to know how it would all unravel. You can't help but love Stevie and her friends while getting caught and twisted up in the details of the whole winding mystery. I'm tempted to start it all over just to stay with these characters and Ellingham Academy's eccentricities. ”

  31. The Gravity of Us

    “I cannot get over how thoroughly I enjoyed this book. So much so, that I accidentally took a 45 minute detour on a route I know like the back of my hand, because I was so utterly engrossed in it (It's true, ask my family who were wondering why I was so delayed). Stamper has perfectly captured the space race of the 50s & 60s and brought it into our modern social media ethos. And that just barely scratches the surface. You've got one of the sweetest romances I've ever read between Cal & Leon, a super believable bad guy (screw you, Josh), and convincing & ever-evolving family dynamics. But most striking to me was the conversation surrounding mental health (depression in particular) and how incredibly relatable Cal's need to fix things was. His mother's words "Don't aim to fix people. Fixing seems so permanent, so absolute. Like there's no room for error. Aim to make things better.” continue to stick with me long after the last page (or minute rather, since I listened on Libro.fm). I could go on, but you're better off just reading it yourself. ”

  33. They Went Left

    “They Went Left by Monica Hesse distracted me from doing anything else. This is a compelling story of a young Polish Holocaust survivor, Zofia Lederman, searching for her brother in the chaotic days following the liberation of Europe. Through many emotional twists and turns, the reader learns that there are many places and ways to find hope and family and not always the ones we expect.”

    Heart of Iron

    “When Ana’s android partner, Di, starts to experience debilitating glitches, she’ll stop at nothing to save him — but an Ironblood boy beats her to the coordinates that could save Di’s life. The two end up on the lam, racing towards the coordinates together, and along the way they discover secrets that will change their lives forever. If one were to put the loveable crew of Firefly, the swashbuckling space adventures of Treasure Planet, and the odd charm of Don Bluth’s Anastasia into a blender, the result would be Ashley Poston’s Heart of Iron. Poston has written an engaging, effortlessly diverse, and fast-paced tale, with an ending that will leave you chomping at the bit for the sequel.”

  36. By Kacen Callender / Narrated by Ron Butler

    King and the Dragonflies

    “Kingston (King) James and his parents are grieving the loss of Khalid-- King's older brother. When Khalid was alive and the two shared a bedroom, he would talk in his sleep, telling his younger brother stories about the universe and its magic. King continues to see Khalid in his dreams, and is convinced Khalid has transformed into a dragonfly. The Louisiana bayou provides the backdrop for both a colorful landscape and a tense, fearful place where racism festers. When King's former friend, Sandy, who is white, and the son of the racist police chief, goes missing, King ends up helping hide Sandy from his abusive father. Woven seamlessly into this wise story is King's slow awakening of his sexuality, brought to the fore by his renewed friendship with Sandy, who is known to be gay. Callender's writing is so authentic and their characters are so tenderly portrayed by Ron Butler's superb narration I mourned its conclusion. The whole package is a crowning achievement.”
