    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    Story

    This is a wonderful coming-of-age story. The book follows Charlie, the young protagonist, as he gradually emerges from his timid shell and learns to "participate" in the world. It reminded me to muster the courage to truly be present in my own life instead of cowering in the safety of the homebody and wallflower roles. The narration was pretty good as well, however, he sounds like a "valley girl" when he narrates female roles, which is rather annoying. Overall, it was a great performance and superb story!

    Story

    This is a great resource for individuals who are learning Spanish for the first time. It was boring to me since I already knew most of the words. I also listen to books on tape while I run and this book on tape has adjunct visual lessons, which I obviously was not able to view while running. But if you are a beginner who is willing to sit and listen, it should be a great way to build vocabulary but not necessarily a wonderful way to learn how to put together sentences. The narrators simply repeat a variety of vocabulary words according to category (e.g. body, food, animal).

    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

    Lore says: "Decent but not as interesting as Divergent"

    Story

    I liked the story and the performance. However, the narrator sounded slightly young at times and didn't sound as tough/mature as I imagined Tris would despite her young age. Nevertheless, it was definitely worth a listen! I cannot wait to hear what happens next.

  • Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Story

    Cheryl Strayed writes with honesty and attention to detail. I enjoyed hearing about all of her Pacific Crest Trail adventures as well as the spiritual transformation that took place inside of her. Not only did this book make me want to go hiking but it reminded me that in life, if you want something, you simply must make it happen. This is what Cheryl did, and I hope to do the same.
