The first day at a new school is tough for any kid, but it's especially scary when you're going to a school for spies. Cammie Morgan has spent her whole life dreaming of becoming a Gallagher Girl, but she has no idea what she’ll face when she arrives at The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women. Secret passages? Check. Lab experiments that might make you lose your eyebrows (and other body parts)? Check. Classmates who are the smartest, strongest, most intimidating girls in the world? Double check.

First of all, this is NOT historical--just the first section is, then it jumps to modern-day. But that historical part is SO FUN if you know the series. This is a delightful introduction to those new to the world of GG, and if you're a fan already, it's a blast to return to the world and see how the girls came together.

Twelve-year-old Zero is traveling with 20,000 people for 105 years to colonize a new planet. Everyone is in stasis, so they'll be safe during the trip, but when Zero's pod malfunctions it wakes him early, like 105 years early. At first he's excited to be the only one awake - he has the entire ship to himself, so he can go anywhere and see and do and eat anything he wants - but when a family of space pirates show up, trying to hijack the ship and kidnap the colonizers, Zero has to think fast and find a way to stop them all on his own.

I love the way this sounds! The cast is great, and with the narration, it is really easy to follow. The story is funny and exciting. Great for the whole family!

Moving from the big city to the picturesque town of Sunnypoint seems perfect for Dillon and her mom. But the new house - a big, old Victorian - creeps Dillon out, especially the old trunk in the attic that seems to move by itself. As if that weren't bad enough, the tight-knit popular girls at her new school hate her instantly. Dillon finds solace with the quirky kids - Quinn, the film nerd, Birdie, the back-of-the-class wit, and Kumail, the history fanatic. Together they find a mysterious necklace in the trunk, and when Dillon wears it, all of her wishes seem to come true.

This is more like an old timey radio play than a traditional audio book, with a full cast and sound effects. It's broken up into 12 parts, but each one has a cliffhanger so you'll definitely want to binge it. It's for kids, and it's creepy--no spoilers, but ghosts and other supernatural stuff makes this a great Halloween listen.
