    Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father's career and dominating her family's life. When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Song for Julia (Thompson Sisters) to be better than the print version?

    No!!! Even though I don't own the print version, The Audio Version Is good when the man(JACK WALLEN) is reading BUT WHEN THE WOMAN(ALANA RADER)IS READING IT'S SO AWFUL! I don't really like writing bad reviews & I Hardly ever do... BUT I JUST CAN'T HELP MYSELF HERE! THIS WOMAN REALLY SUCKS!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the story line & the Jack Wallen's accent is perfect for Crank!


    What didn’t you like about Jack Wallen and Alana Rader ’s performance?

    I loved Jacks performance BUT I HATE ALANA'S!? Alana is constantly making all kinds of weird noises & one minute she sounds like she is in a tunnel talking & the next it sounds like she is sucking on the microphone! You can gear her breathing, swallowing, FLUSHING THE DAMN TOILET EVEN!! I MEAN CONE ON LADY TAKE SOME PRIDE IN YOUR JOB! THIS AUTHOR HAS A GREAT BOOK & YOUR RUINING IT!


    If you could rename A Song for Julia (Thompson Sisters), what would you call it?

    I LOVE THE NAME I DON'T THINK I'D CHANGE IT! HOWEVER I'D DEFINITELY CHANGE HER VOICE! I KNOW, I KNOW I KEEP SAYING HOW HORRIBLE ALANA'S PERFORMANCE IS... BUT IT IS REALLY REALLY BAD!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the author would get it remade WITHOUT THE ANNOYING ALANA RADER!!

    Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the trail is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions - her creator, Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal. The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost - the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden.

    Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just... wants her, Lily is about ready to trade forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm. The fact that she and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary, but she can't shake her not-so-angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.

    Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all - popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend. Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she is or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, Sam realizes that it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear that she and Cassie were more like best enemies.
