Do you care too much about what other people think and just want to be happy?

For some people it will take them years of feeling alienated or that something is wrong with them before they realize their talent.

This is an interesting and informative book. Now I know why I become overwhelmed in large crowds and become overwhelmed by emotions sometimes. Easy to listen and refreshing, comes with case examples to help explain the concepts. Concise and well researched.

The Vietnam War has ended at last, leaving both sides to question what they’d been fighting for. It seems that no one has won at all, and horrors remain, like so many landmines. Many of the homecoming "heroes" have committed crimes against humanity...but now they wear medals, not manacles. Having lost his entire family to a unit of rogue Marines, Xuan Lang is only beginning to pick up the pieces. Assembling them won’t be easy and nothing can bring back what was taken - but, even so, his efforts may afford him final peace....

Brandy Jo Danner made up her mind in the third grade that someday, she was going to marry Dane Bronson. "Determined" doesn't begin to describe Brandy Jo.... "Sassy" would be more accurate. Dane has wanted to ask Brandy Jo out for the past 14 years, but his shyness has kept him at bay. It appears two people could not be more different. When Dane finally works up the courage to ask her out, his rival, Hank Halverson, gives Dane a run for his money.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story about profound love in this family. Affection is truly apparent in their interactions. Renee Riva is one hell of a writer, and Samuel Deeter is a passionate narrator. They both did an outstanding job in delivering the message of hope, love, and friendship. The characters are a wonderful treat as you get to know them. It's a quick listen and a pleasant story to enjoy.

I listened to it on one sitting and enjoyed it very much. The ending was quite a surprise. The suspense kept me hooked up through the whole listen. I originally thought that one character was a culprit, but as it turned out, it was another one. Carrie Burgess, thanks for stepping up and getting this done for us. Great job!

This series is absolutely enjoyable! But you should definitely start with the first book. I love the setting with plenty of engaging characters working on solving mysteries. The stories are narrated from the heroine's perspective. Sandra Murphy is doing an outstanding job through the pitch, accuracy in execution and attention to dynamics. I hope there is more to come. A very nice listen.

A century ago, the World Government sold it as "Peace on Earth." All they did was convince the citizens of the world to download their minds into the Internet, leaving their bodies floating in stasis tanks. Now Sergeant First Class (Ret.) Scott Douglas was free to read a book in peace, without having to listen to the hippies and their endless whining. His only job was to walk through the stasis tanks once a day and check for problems. Then the Internet went down. Without it regulating their brains, humanity would be dead in a matter of days. It was up to Scott to save the hippies, even if all they did was complain.

I truly appreciated this brief listen. It paints a very peculiar look into the future. The book is read as a journal of some sort and teaches us not to listen to the world government. It's a very good point, but do we really have a choice?

Medical terminology is like learning to speak another language. If you are working or a student in the medical field, you don’t have much time to figure out basic medical terminology. This audiobook breaks down words into their simplest form to better understand all those confusing terms in a simple, organized way.

Oh right, the incredibly hot new neighbor Josh, who she might like more than she secretly loves boy bands. The only problem is, her best friend Lilly likes him, too. They promise each other they'll both stay away, but Josh doesn't seem to want to stay away from Leah...

Being a teen is supposed to be fun, but instead, it puts a lot of stress on a young mind. It will be a perfect listen for someone who wants to feel the reality of being a teenager! And the narrator's voice makes the story feel very genuine (5 stars!). I unreservedly enjoyed listening to Leah's Song! The throwback to the '90s did help me better identify with the characters. Leah is self-conscious, fun and awesome. Her confidence noticeably develops throughout the novel. I love it! Don't listen to all the naysayers, they must be very sad and disgruntled people hating their own life. Out of all Mountain Creek Drive series, this one is probably the best.
