Becoming

“I adore our former president and I miss him. Yet I cannot help but be ecstatic that Michelle is coming out with a book about her own life so that I can learn more about this powerful, intelligent, and singularly awesome woman. Barack would be the first to say that his wife is a superstar, and I can’t wait to get my hands on Becoming to read about her in her own words.”

Educated

A Memoir
By Tara Westover
Narrated by Julia Whelan /  12 hours 9 minutes

Educated

“Tara Westover is barely 30; could she really write a necessary and timely memoir already? Absolutely. Raised largely 'off the grid' in rural Idaho - without school, doctor visits, a birth certificate, or even a family consensus on the date of her birth - Tara nevertheless decides she wants to go to college. This is a story in two parts: First, Tara's childhood working in a dangerous scrapyard alongside her six siblings, her survivalist father, and her mother, a conflicted but talented midwife and healer, while fearing Y2K and the influence of the secular world; then, her departure from her mountain home to receive an education. Both halves of her story are equally fascinating. Educated is a testament to Tara's brilliance and tenacity, a bittersweet rendering of how family relationships can be cruel or life-saving, and a truly great read from the first page to the last.”

The Lost Girls of Paris

A Novel
By Pam Jenoff
Narrated by Elizabeth Knowelden, Henrietta Meire & Candace Thaxton /  11 hours 41 minutes

The Lost Girls of Paris

“Pam Jenoff specializes in finding a piece of history that has not been fully explored and that often leaves one thinking truth is stranger than fiction. In The Lost Girls of Paris, she returns to WWII but this time her protagonists are a group of British women recruited to blend into the French countryside and sabotage the Nazi network in preparation for D-Day. The story, told from the perspective of three women, ties up a whodunit in a satisfying knot with a little romance, but it’s really a lot more about women finding out who they are and what role they can play in making a difference in the world.”

The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy

Montague Siblings: Book #2
By Mackenzi Lee
Narrated by Moira Quirk /  11 hours 16 minutes

The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy

“Mackenzi Lee has done it again! The Montagues are back and ready for business. This time we follow Felicity Montague and her dream of working in medicine. Felicity knows what she wants to do with her life, but because it’s a “man’s world” she isn’t allowed to follow her dream. But she doesn’t let this stop her, or discourage her. In fact it only fuels her fire. She is determined to show all of those who say she cant, or that this is a “flighting fancy,” that she is just as skilled as a man. To do this she has to get to an old friend’s wedding across Europe and convince the groom-to-be that she is as amazing as she knows she is. But the adventure doesn’t stop there. Like Monty’s book, Lady’s Guide, shows that it’s okay to be different and that being a strong female isn’t something to be ashamed of, nor is it something to fear. This book has everything; girl-gangs, pirates, sea monsters.”

The Poet X

By Elizabeth Acevedo
Narrated by Elizabeth Acevedo /  3 hours 30 minutes

The Poet X

“The Poet X is written and narrated by Elizabeth Acevedo. It is a novel made up of poems by a teenager, Xiomara Batista, growing up in Harlem. Acevedo's narration is wonderful and brings the story to life. Xiomara's dad is MIA even though he lives at home; her mother is extremely religious and pushes her faith onto her daughter; her twin brother is quiet and also working through his own feelings; she starts her first relationship with a guy; and all the time Xiomara is told what she can and cannot do, gets accosted by men, has to defend herself because no one else will, is questioning God and has no one to open up to. She releases her pent of feelings in a notebook. It isn't until her new English teacher introduces her to spoken poetry that she realizes that is what she is meant to be: a poet. This is a lovely story of a young, misunderstood girl, coming of age and showing the world that she is worth it. Great for adults who enjoyed Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson and extremely relevant literature for the #metoo movement.”
