    Theodore Boone is back in a new adventure, and the stakes are higher than ever.... When his best friend, April, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo Boone - who knows April better than anyone - has answers. As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it's up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April.

    I enjoyed listening to Ed Westwick narrate this story. He has a great tone with voices and his overall performance was nice. However I did not enjoy the chapters that Molly C. Quinn narrated. Her voice was more flat and didn't show much difference between characters.

    Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. Nearly 700 years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest alchemist of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life. The records show that he died in 1418. But his tomb is empty. The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives, but only because he has been making the elixir of life for centuries.

    What did you love best about Peter and the Starcatchers?

    I love this new perspective on Peter Pan. Even if you are not a fan of Peter Pan you have not met him until you have read Peter and the Starcatchers. The story is much more interesting, detailed, and different than you think.

    ARE YOU A GIFTED CHILD LOOKING FOR SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES? Dozens of children respond to this peculiar ad in the newspaper and are then put through a series of mind-bending tests. (And you, dear listener, can test your wits right alongside them.) Only four children - Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance - succeed. Their challenge: to go on a secret mission that only the most intelligent and inventive children could complete.
