    Tia and Mike Baye never imagined they'd become the type of overprotective parents who spy on their kids. But their 16-year-old son, Adam, has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his classmate, Spencer Hill they can't help but worry. They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam's computer, and within days they are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son: "Just stay quiet and all safe."

    Meanwhile, Betsy Hill is struck by a photo that appears to have been taken on the night of her son's death...and he wasn't alone.

    loved it! not as sarcastic as with his myron books....but i also needed a break from him. they were starting to be the same. as a parent...i could totally relate to this book. got a bit confusing as to what blame was to be placed on the little sister. kept me going...listening at work whenever i got a break.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "really good listen"
    Overall

    I have to say, this story was made sooo much better by listening, rather than reading. I think it is a great story either way, but after listening to the varied voices in the narration, I can't imagine it being as impressive reading it. I have truly become an "audio book" person...and this book is the perfect example of how listening gives you a so much better perspective...they always say the book is better than the movie...this audio book gives you the best of both worlds. The narrators make you feel as if you are watching them.
    A great story.....made even better by narration. Anyway you take in this book, you will love it. All the women are loveable...well, most.
    This is a story I would save for my daughter to read when she's older.....a future classic...couldn't put it down..one of the best i"ve listened to.....audio is the way to go with it.

    I loved this book! Narration is excellent. absolutely could not wait to get back to it and hear what happened to the characters next. This author gets you to know and care about each and every person in the story.

    In her debut novel, Rajaa Alsanea reveals the social, romantic, and sexual tribulations of four young women from the elite classes of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Originally released in Arabic in 2005, it was immediately banned in Saudi Arabia because of the controversial and inflammatory content, though black-market copies circulated widely.

    Kathy Daniels says: "Fantastic Book"
    "ok"
    Overall

    Ok ..so this was a bit like a sisterhood of the traveling pants...in Saudi . It was enjoyable but didn't quite cut it. i love books about the "eastern" cultures...I can't put my finger on it ..but this didn't quite cut it.

    Beard's stunning debut is an epistolary novel written from 15-year-old Tess DeNunzio to her little sister Zoe. After Zoe's accidental death on September 11, 2001, a day so many others died, Tess' family is numbed by their personal tragedy. Already acutely aware of her odd place in a home where her mother and stepfather now have children of their own, Tess begins her letter as a means of figuring out her own life, from her two-hour-a-day hair and makeup ritual to her complicity in Zoe's death.

    Overall

    I bought this on a whim. I was very impressed with the narrator...is she really a teenager? Also the fact that this was written by a man....he is so intuned to a teenage girl's angst..I find this unbelievable. Any way the book hooked me from the beginning...you just don't want to stop the car! It's sweet ,and sad. I don't know what I'd say about reading it...I trully think the narrator made this a great "listen". Get it. It's short and sweet and you will LOVE it.

    For Kimberly Quincy, FBI Special Agent, it all starts with a pregnant hooker. The story Delilah Rose tells Kimberly about her johns is too horrifying to be true; but prostitutes are disappearing, one by one, with no explanation, and no one but Kimberly seems to care.

    K. Kennedy says: "Not for the faint of heart"
    "keep you reading or listening all night"
    Overall

    this was a great book!! Disturbing...but anybody who loves thrillers would love it. It was one of the best I've listened to, of late as far as keeping you with the earpiece in your ear...all day.
    Lisa Gardner is a new author to me...but I'm now a fan. "Hide" was a great read..and this book is the first I've listened to.
    The different characters make it easy to follow and the Narration is perfect for this story!
    listen to it....!

    A serial killer watches and waits. Each time, he takes two victims, preparing the first's body with all the clues the police need to find the second, who is still alive. The clock ticks, and the second one can still be saved. But the police never make it in time. The second one dies. For years, the killer has plagued the city with the same pattern, but the police never pick up on it quickly enough.

    Mina Brown says: "Captivating--it hooks you!"
    "love the author...can't take the narrator"
    Overall

    I LOVE this author!! however, I'm finding it tough to get through this book on audio..thinking of buying the paperback....her voice is so monotonous....doesn't change a bit between characters, or situations. I find myself rewinding because I'm spacing out. It's never happened with any other book.
    Just finished "say goodbye"...it was awesome! kept me listening into the night.
    I think this story will be just as good but I now know a narrator can make all the difference.

    Story

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Suze says: "Mesmerizing"
    "nineteen minutes"
    Overall

    This is a must read for any parent..whether your children are little or old. When my kids were born, I always remembered a kid that was picked on. when you have kids...it's not always something you can see. I always wondered what it would be like to have a child that was picked on like so many that I remember from high school.
    How do you know whether they'll be "cool" or dorks. we like them sensitive when they're young, and personally I'd like to keep them that way. I remember too many kids who didn't deserve their abuse.
    As a parent you want them to be middle road..but even with middle road, pressures are there.
    my children are young..and I still fear their quest for popularity over being a "good " person.Just reinforce this in your kids and READ this book.
