I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    For Kirsten McKenna, the world is crumbling. Her parents are barely speaking to each other, and her best friend has come under the spell of the school's queen bee, Brianna. Only Kirsten's younger science-geek sister is on her side. Meanwhile, for Walker Jones, the goal is to survive at the new white private school his mom has sent him to because she thinks he's going to screw up like his cousin.

    Amazing how adults can screw up kids lives. Anyway, while I don't believe these characters are 7th graders, I can believe they are teens. And they have certainly been dealt a bad hand in this game. Making the best of things is their way of life and I laughed considerably while they did this. I saw the plot coming long before it happened. If you like this book then you should get the Ariadne Meyers narrated books by
    Sarah Mlynowski. Start with Bras and Broomsticks. Not only will you laugh about being a teen again, but Ariadne Meyers was great.

    I enjoyed Francois Battiste in this book. I'll look for books he has narrated in the future.

    With this episode on September 26, 1937, The Shadow premiered on the Mutual radio network. It featured Orson Welles as Lamont Cranston (aka The Shadow) and Agnes Moorehead as his "friend and companion, the lovely Margot Lane". Welles starred in the series for a year, departing in September 1938. The classic line "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" was actually spoken by Frank Readick, who had previously portrayed the title character.

    Orson Welles is the narrator. A different version for sure! I never think of Orson Welles and The Shadow as the same but I am learning. A quick listen and worthwhile.

    Pick pockets thinking that they come out ahead by taking the money of others. When it comes down to ill-gotten money, it just doesn't add up to a good ending.

    The Shadow stories are short and enjoyable but they can be difficult to hear due to the age of the original media. I prefer the stronger voice of Bret Morrison over Bill Johnstone, Bret's voice carries more cleanly across the years of the aging media storage.

    Try to listen to these audio stories at home or with some serious noise canceling headphones. It will make the listening time more enjoyable. Stories vary in quality of writing. Pick these up in the sets of audio instead of individuals.

    This one was read by Orson Welles. The district attorney has been threatened.

    I thought this story was odd but not out of line for The Shadow. Quick and enjoyable with a simple but weird tale of fraud.
