    Jimmy Harris has a lot to learn about girls. Then again, what sixth grade boy doesn't? As the sixth grade begins, Jimmy promptly finds himself in love with not one, but two girls. What's a boy to do? Luckily, he has football to distract him, and as the big game approaches, Jimmy must make a very big decision, perhaps the biggest in his young life.

    This was a delightful audio book, very easy to pick up and listen. It wasn't long at all and I finished in one listen. I would recommend to kids of all ages, boys and girls alike. Narrator did an excellent job and it was fun to follow along with Jimmy in his adventures.

    This poem, although it was written by gay author Edward Petty almost 12 years ago, still captures Halloween's chilling and scary feel, and depicts how some spirits can remain restless. A Vampire's Lament speaks about how monotonous and mundane it can be trying to sustain a sense of life, even in an not-so-dead state.

    This was a very short (2 min long) poem about a vampire's well you guessed it, (his lament). The poem was very well written and the narration was on par. It had added sound effects with gave it more immersion. would be great addition to a vampire novel or even a movie.

    Sometimes our children have medical issues that are difficult for them to understand. Wouldn't it be great to be able to explain complex medical problems to children in a way that would allow them to: Learn and understand more about their condition? Learn the causes and available treatment for their condition? Learn how to become independent and responsible for taking better care of their bodies? Learn how to treat or help a friend or sibling with a health condition?

    Story

    I really enjoyed reading about Estelle, who is a child that gets diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. This story is fiction but I was pleasantly surprised who accurate it was (I am an RN), there's even a very helpful guide at beginning for what happens when a child is experiencing symptoms. Type 1 diabetes is hard enough for adults but there are more and more cases of children who are diagnosed, Estelle's story is good for children and parents who might have or know someone who has diabetes. The narrator was also excellent, made a good story even more enjoyable. would recommend.

    Kevin Terwilliger lives in relative peace in Cambridge, Oregon in 1958. He feels a little bit worse for the wear after being moved hither and yon due to his father's military background. He isn't safe at his new school, either. There's a proverbial bully there named Ronald Eugene Pfefferman who doesn't seem to him to want to back down with his snide remarks. Read on, and see how Kevin fares against this turmoil with help from his friend, Connor Billingsley. There might be hope for him after all.

    Overall the story was really well done and fun to listen to too, I felt that the narrator was sometimes going to fast paced but did a great job non the less. The story is short but very good and funny and leaves you wanting more from this author. A book for children but anyone can read it and enjoy.

    While I received this free in an exchange for a review, I'd gladly pay for it. The stories are short and super fun to listen to. The narrator makes the story fun and easy to listen. Find out what's really happening during the annual race, is someone cheating?

    Almost-world-famous detectives Ellie and Ace are back! At least Ellie is. But where is Ace? Could it be? Is he really.... Asleep on the job?! Even worse, has he become a sneaky snacker? A cheating chow hound? Ace no longer wants to take a bite out of crime, he just wants to take a bite out of dinner - Ellie's, that is. How will Ellie and Ace ever become world famous detectives if Ace has given up the sleuth business for good?

    This is really a nightmare come true but, what a great story. It was suspenseful and exiting and I couldn't stop listening. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good revenge story. The narrator was excellent and did a great job submerging you into the story.

    The Yellow Wallpaper was first published in January 1892. It is regarded as an important early work of American feminist literature, illustrating attitudes in the 19th century toward women's physical and mental health. The story is a collection of diary entries written by Jane whose physician husband has confined her to the upstairs bedroom of a house he has rented for the summer. The Yellow Wallpaper has been interpreted as a condemnation of the paternalism of the 19th-century medical profession.

    I love the Yellow Wallpaper, I've read it numerous times during high school and college. This is my first time listening to it, Dawn Harvey did an amazing job narrating. I would recommend it to anyone, especially women.
