    When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created perfect life is about to unravel before her eyes. She's forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect.

    Leslie says: "Perfect Chemisty has perfect chemistry."

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I liked the story, but the female narrator was terrible. It was like listening to a middle aged Jan Brady trying to sound like a teenager. UGGHHH!

    You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it's windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He's the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He's pretty much irresistible.

    If you could sum up That Boy in three words, what would they be?

    Youthful, thoughtful, a book with substance


    What other book might you compare That Boy to and why?

    Jenny Han's books: The Summer I Turned Pretty (series of 3 books), because both books sound as if the narrator is having a private conversation with you. Simone Elkeles' Ruined (Series of 3 books). Another strong female character who brings a conversational tone to the book. The books are laugh out loud funny. If I Stay by Gayle Forman, because of the interesting view point and dealing with the death of a family member. All of the books I've compared deal with books that have strong female leads. There's romance in all three recommendations. All the main characters are likable, complicated, and human.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scene with Danny teaching JJ how to kiss, because it made me laugh.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep. I loved the narrator and the book equally.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator actually sounded like a teenager. I hate listening to a woman or man who sounds like they're 55 read the part of a teenager. I don't want to hear a raspy smokers / sexy voice when listening to YA. I want to hear a YA read a YA book. This narrator did just that. She is awesome.

    This bittersweet novel by Jenny Han recounts the summer of Belly's 16th birthday. When she and her family arrive at the beach house that June, her longtimesummer pal Jeremiah appears standoffish and awkward in her presence. And his older brother Conrad - her secret crush - seems distant and cold. But her blossoming beauty isn't the only reason for their change in behavior.

    Jennifer says: "Come on Conrad you know you want Belly"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Summer I Turned Pretty to be better than the print version?

    I loved both the print and audio versions. This is a book I can re-read or listen to it over and over again.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    This book was poorly written and narrated. I couldn't decide who was worse and I'm going to say the author and narrator tied for the worst performance EVER! I was laughing so hard I peed my pants. My tip, listen with a group of friends and get ready to mock. If you want to roll your eyes a lot, then this is the book for you.


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    She is terrible. She overacts throughout and the character sounds psycho. But the psycho part is 50% the author's fault.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NOPE.


    Any additional comments?

    Why is the book and series popular? Got me. I have no clue. My tip, listen with a group of friends and get ready to mock.
