Where the Crawdads Sing

By Delia Owens
Narrated by: Cassandra Campbell
Length: 12 hours 11 minutes

Where the Crawdads Sing

“Everyone that Kya has ever known has abandoned her. From the time that she was a young child she is left behind. After the student truancy officers track her down and get her to school the children laugh at her so she retreats to the only place that she feels normal - the marshland of North Carolina. She perseveres when she has every strike against her. She fends for herself and studies the natural surroundings of the marsh carefully. She paints and catalogs her collections, studies animal biology carefully, and becomes more in tune with nature than with the townspeople who call her "The Marsh Girl." Then one day the town's "golden boy" Chase Andrews ends up dead and Kya is the one that is suspected of killing him. The story that unfolds will draw you in - I was consumed with the story to the point where I could think about little else during the day because I had to know what happened next in the book. I laughed, I cried, I did fist pumps when things go well for Kya... this book infected me and I'm still having a tough time with the idea that the book is over. I'll carry these characters and this story with me for a long time.”

The Book of Accidents

A Novel

By Chuck Wendig
Narrated by: Xe Sands & George Newbern
Length: 16 hours 48 minutes

If you enjoyed It, then you’ll love The Book of Accidents.

“Moving back to Nate’s childhood home, it offers a fresh start for his teenage son and the perfect creative space for his artist of a wife, especially now that Nate’s abusive father is dead. It isn’t too long, however, that memories of his childhood, as well as something entirely supernatural and altogether evil, threatens to harm him and his family. The Book of Accidents is a spooky dark fantasy with the twisty turns of a multiversal thriller (quite popular for the last decade). It reads as a love-letter to all of author Stephen King’s greatest hits, including Pet Sematary, It, and The Stand, but with much more heart, hope, and love. A definite triumph for author Chuck Wendig. Both Xe Sands and George Newbern did spectacular in the narration, adjusting to the various changes in characters like champs and overall making the listening experience as smooth as butter. *Chef’s kiss*”

The One and Only Bob

By Katherine Applegate
Narrated by: Danny DeVito
Length: 3 hours 49 minutes

The One and Only Bob

“Gruff-but-lovable Bob the dog picks up the narrator’s reins in this follow-up to Newbery winner The One and Only Ivan. He’s adjusting to his newfound status as a family dog after years on his own, and looks forward to trips to the zoo to visit with old friends Ivan and Ruby. When a bad storm throws his world into chaos, Bob finds bravery he never knew he had in order to rescue a friend he thought was lost forever. Themes of courage, friendship, and forgiveness are balanced perfectly against Bob’s wry observations and self-deprecating wit. Readers in grades three through six—and anyone who loved Ivan—will cherish more time spent with these characters. Highly recommended.”
