    Four years ago Kacey Cleary's life imploded when her car was hit by a drunk driver, killing her parents, boyfriend, and best friend. Still haunted by memories of being trapped inside, holding her boyfriend's lifeless hand and listening to her mother take her last breath, Kacey wants to leave her past behind. Armed with two bus tickets, Kacey and her 15-year-old sister, Livie, escape Grand Rapids, Michigan, to start over in Miami. Kacey's not worried. She can handle anything - anything but her mysterious neighbor in apartment 1D.

    If you could sum up Ten Tiny Breaths in three words, what would they be?

    Forgiveness
    Second chance
    Funny


    What did you like best about this story?

    The memory the heroin had from her mother to "take ten tiny breaths".... it made sense to me as we all carry good and or bad memories from mothers and they stick to us....no matter what....and one day they make sense.


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Louise’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Always good!!!!


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

    Almost did!

    Harper Curtis is a killer who stepped out of the past. Kirby Mazrachi is the girl who was never meant to have a future. Kirby is the last shining girl, one of the bright young women, burning with potential, whose lives Harper is destined to snuff out after he stumbles on a House in Depression-era Chicago that opens on to other times. At the urging of the House, Harper inserts himself into the lives of the shining girls, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. He's the ultimate hunter, vanishing into another time after each murder, untraceable - until one of his victims survives.

    Would you listen to The Shining Girls again? Why?

    Yes, I would. Interesting history and alerts you about being more careful and educating more your children not to engage with strangers.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The one Kerby (or whatever her name is written) is attacked and "saved" by the dog. Very graphic and emotional!


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no. They were awesome....spectacular performance; it made the book go from 4,5* to 5* and more!!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ones that described the mind of 'Harper",,,the attacker.


    Any additional comments?

    Could`NO put it down. My husband would make me go back so he could catch up to the history every night! Did my last half-marathon listening the the final chapters! It was great!

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fault in Our Stars to be better than the print version?

    I always prefer listening to a book over reading it; if the narration is as good as it was in this book you enter a different dimension and immerse yourself in the book....you are part of it and it`s fantastic. The voices; the sounds can make you feel a breeze and even a smell.


    What other book might you compare The Fault in Our Stars to and why?

    My sister`s keeper _ Jodi Picoult


    Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was the first but she is great! 5 stars!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laugh many times with Hazel sarcasm and her bitter-sweet sense of reality. I didn`t cry but it made me count my blessings even more....for sure.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to anybody but specially for those who struggle with cancer or those who have a friend or a family member battling this terrible disease. It`s not only a teenager book as many reviewers said. It`s a book to the OPEN HEART and OPEN MIND ones. ENJOY!!!!
