    On a winter night in 1964, Dr. David Henry is forced by a blizzard to deliver his own twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy. Yet when his daughter is born, he sees immediately that she has Down's Syndrome. Rationalizing it as a need to protect Norah, his wife, he makes a split-second decision that will alter all of their lives forever. He asks his nurse to take the baby away to an institution and never to reveal the secret.

    Amy says: "The worst book yet!"

    I enjoyed this book. It was a good read even though it was sad book about life.

    When seven-year-old Julianna meets new neighbor, Bryce, she flips over him, but he flees from her. For years, she tries to get close to him, and he runs away. In eighth grade, when Bryce takes a second look at Julianna it’s his turn to flip. But is he too late? Award-winning author Wendelin Van Draanen creates a dual perspective in Flipped that is enhanced by the narration of Andy Paris and Carine Montbertrand.

    Pat says: "Powerful"

    Overall

    This is a He Said/She Said type book. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We listened on a long journey - a grandma and her daughter and grand-daughter. Great for all ages.

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    Howard says: "You won't be able to stop the player"
    "The Devil Wears Prada"
    Overall

    I don't say this very often, but I enjoyed the movie more than the book. There was unnecessary detail. If you listen, get the abridged version.

  • Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson

    Several things about 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson's life are very wrong. Her bedroom smells like her little sister probably peed somewhere, but she can?t find where. Angus, her enormous cat, keeps terrorizing Mrs. Next Door's poodle. Dad's gone off to look for work in New Zealand. And one of her friends has rated Georgia's nose a zero on a scale from 1-10. But what's really driving her crazy is that Sex God Robbie doesn't give her the time of day.

    Kristi says: "Hilarious listen for pre-teens and adults"
    "Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging"
    Overall

    I found it to be a Junior version of Bridget Jones' Diary. Never did complete the story, since I had read both Bridget books.

    By the time James Frey enters a drug and alcohol treatment facility, he has so thoroughly ravaged his body that the doctors are shocked he is still alive. Inside the clinic, he is surrounded by patients as troubled as he: a judge, a mobster, a former world-champion boxer, and a fragile former prostitute. To James, their friendship and advice seem stronger and truer than the clinic's droning dogma of How to Recover.

    Robert in Denver says: "Waste of time"

    Overall

    It was OK. I am not sure of why there was so much hype over it.
