Dry

By Neal Shusterman & Jarrod Shusterman
Narrated by Jenni Barber, Noah Galvin, Michael Crouch, Kivlighan De Montebello, Neal Shusterman & Jarrod Shusterman /  11 hours 6 minutes

Dry

“In the near-future, the drought in SoCal has reached catastrophic proportions despite years of warnings and restrictions...and it becomes downright apocalyptic once a water supply deal falls through and the water is turned off entirely. The main story of Dry follows Alyssa, her brother, and their prepper neighbor as they try to survive in this new world while society crumbles around them. The Shustermen have clearly done their research when it comes to the effects of dehydration and desperation — something that is viscerally and terrifyingly conveyed throughout the book. Told through the point of view of several characters, the timely plot grabs you from page one and pulls you at a breakneck pace all the way through to the end, with each person having their own distinct voice and coping mechanisms. Just be sure to have a glass of water handy while you’re reading — you’ll need it.”

Five Feet Apart

By Rachael Lippincott
Narrated by Joy Osmanski & Corey Brill /  6 hours 51 minutes

Five Feet Apart

“This story is a celebration of life. When our main characters, Stella and Will end up at the same hospital with CF, they are instantly curious about each other. However, while Stella does the best she can to stay on top of her treatments and regimes, Will is the complete opposite. Stella does not understand how Will could be so lax about things that could prolong his life. Will does not believe Stella is living her best life. Both have pasts they’d rather not speak about and both need each other, more than they realize. Where’s the irony, you ask? If they touch each other, they could die. With this in mind, “5 feet apart” becomes their lifeline and a normalcy, they cling to. This is a thrilling, heartbreaking and informative read, which will make you rethink the everyday.”
