    Determined to thwart her parents' plans to marry her off into Asian suburbia, Fiona seeks her freedom at any price. How far will she go to bury the Hello Kitty stereotype forever? Fiona's journey of self-discovery is biting and clever as she embraces her true nature and creates her own version of the American Dream, eliminating - without fear or remorse - anyone who stands in her way.

    The first time I listened, I liked the reader, but not the story. Listened again because I lost everything else on my device on a trip, and appreciated the humor much more. If you can divorce yourself from the seriousness of the topic, you'll laugh...maybe even snort! The show "Dexter" is the same genre - if you like that, you'll like this.

    Jet McAlister has a secret. Eddie Chavez has the hots for Jet (not to mention Eddie’s just plain hot). Jet has too many problems to realize that Eddie’s interested. Eddie loses patience when Jet ends her waitressing shift at a strip club with a knife at her throat. Since Eddie’s a cop, he figures he can help. Since Jet’s used to solving everyone’s problems she doesn’t want Eddie’s help.

    ....she calls it her "doo-dah." Please. The characters are in their late twenties, not diapers.

    Juliet Lawler has got a score to settle against the drug dealers of Denver. Vance Crowe has made it his mission that Jules won’t get dead while dishing out vigilante justice. Jules doesn’t have time for romance; she’s too busy saving the world. She enlists Zip (the gunstore owner), Heavy (an ex-PI) and Frank (a mysterious recluse) to help. The Rock Chicks get involved to provide advice and guidance. The Hot Bunch adopt Jules as one of their own.

    The Rock Chick books are entertaining and fun, but I get annoyed by the damsel-in-distress idiocy of the main characters. Jules is a bad-ass, smart, and fun. She has the same relationship hang ups as the other Rock Chick heroines, but her man is the same tenacious, testosterone-y, manly man as the rest of the Rock Chick guys, and you know how that turns out. This is my favorite book in the series so far.

    Set over the course of one school year, in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits - smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love - and just how hard it pulled you under.

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    The book is read well, but the format is better suited to a "waiting room" or "bathroom" book - where you're only reading snipets at a time. It's funny, and the reader's voices are great, but one-liners don't make for a great listen.

    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.

    My daughter recommended this book to me - and I LOVE it. The story is the perfect mix of plausible and what we wish for, the characters are real and likeable, and the author's use of humor to cope with sadness makes this a favorite! The reader has a great delivery (though my daughter disagreed - she read the print version and "heard" something else in her head). Listen or read - it's a fantastic book!
