    Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He's pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence, until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.

    "Amazing"
    Overall

    This is a great book for older teens as it has an important message about getting involved and caring about others and the positive effect it can have own your life. Beware about reading to younger kids as it has some mild bad language and a heavy scene with rape. My son loved this book and didn't want it to end. It has a similar message as "The ultimate Gift" but more serious and appealing to older teens.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    "Could not put it down"
    Overall

    This is one of those books that you can't stop listening to. I never listen to audio books outside of my car but I took this to book to bed with me and listened to it on my Ipod because I just had to know what happened next. Though it is an easy listen, it was still very captivating.

    Grace di Giovanni wants to be a Broadway star, but she has a long way to go. She's never even played a lead in one of her high school's musicals. This year, though, Grace and her best friend, Emily, have decided they're not going to just fade into the background. This year will be different.

    Kathy says: "Good young teen book"
    "Good young teen book"
    Overall

    Though a typical "high school girl teen" story, it was better than most. It had all the regular issues of wanting to be popular, maintaining girl friendships while having a first boyfriend, dealing with siblings and clueless parents. However, it also had the interesting twist of getting the lead role in the high production of Grease. And even though Grace had a boyfriend, they weren't having sex yet (and it wasn't a huge deal or a lot of pressure to.) Both my 13 and 17 year old girls liked this book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Can't Stop Thinking About it"
    Overall

    I loved this book. One of the best and fastest reads in a long time. I still can't stop thinking about Ender and his life. Though it's a science fiction book, it's mostly about the life of a special kid and his mental and emotional strength.
