Nothing to See Here

By Kevin Wilson
Narrated by Marin Ireland /  6 hours 40 minutes

Nothing to See Here

“When a politician’s young wife hires her old school friend as a nanny for her two stepchildren, the main duty will be to keep the twins out of sight and out of trouble. That’s because the kids’ father is a senator and under serious consideration to be the next Secretary of State. But what if the children can’t control themselves? Who is the best person to take care of children who are afflicted with spontaneous combustion? Obviously, a woman with no fear of fire, nothing to lose, and nothing to gain. At turns hilarious and heartbreaking, this unique novel explores family dynamics, resentment, and retribution, leaving the reader with a new perspective on motherhood and what it means to be loyal to those you love.”

The Dutch House

A Novel
By Ann Patchett
Narrated by Tom Hanks /  9 hours 52 minutes

The Dutch House

“The Dutch House is an engrossing story that spans over 50 years. It is about a house and the memories that it holds. The story revolves around Danny and Maeve, a brother and sister who love each other deeply - more than any other person including Danny's wife. They share a sad childhood in which their Mother disappears with very little explanation. They are brought up by their distant father who loves their home, The Dutch House, more than his children or his second wife. When he dies suddenly in his 50's, the second wife takes everything and throws Danny and Maeve out of the house. The siblings manage and continue to be each other's lifeline. I enjoyed this book tremendously and developed great affection for the siblings, even with their complex, dysfunctional dynamics. An added bonus: Tom Hanks reads the story with plenty of heart and soul.”

Cog

By Greg van Eekhout
Narrated by James Fouhey /  4 hours 1 minute

Cog

“Meet Cog: your typical curious, earnest young boy...who just happens to be a robot. After an accident, he wakes up in an unfamiliar lab surrounded by unfamiliar faces. His creator, Gina, has gone missing, and Cog takes it upon himself to find her. But he’s not alone; long-lost sister Ada, Trashbot, Proto, and Car come to his aid, all while being hunted down by an evil corporation that desperately wants the cutting-edge X-Module in his head. Cog will go through more “cognitive development” than he ever has before as he discovers the power of choice on the road trip of a lifetime. Told with humor and heart, this is a tale that will keep you cheesing until the very end — and you might even learn a thing or two about platypuses along the way.”

By Jason Reynolds
Narrated by Heather Alicia Simms, Chris Chalk, Bahni Turpin, Kevin R. Free, JD Jackson, Guy Lockard, January LaVoy, Jason Reynolds, Adenrele Ojo & David Sadzin /  3 hours 58 minutes

Look Both Ways

“While adults may discount the heavy emotions of middle school, Jason Reynolds has captured all the real life that is young emerging adulthood in his new middle grade book LOOK BOTH WAYS. These middle school children are dealing with the same adversities that hit grown folks but without all the tools adults have and they’re doing alright. This book is insightful, brilliant, heart-breaking and an especially good audiobook from Libro.fm that would be a great family listen.”
