When Ruby woke up on her 10th birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.
Overall, I really enjoyed this thrilling book

Fun and accessible way to learn Italian

one of the best learning tools yet
The audio was overall of good quality. The narrator was clear and precise in the enunciation of the words. Catching the titles of each story was easy to understand overall. (I.e. The old drunkard, find a billion on a cruise, etc.)
I would rather use a longer story with only a few of them, rather then more smaller ones. The book comes with questions to answer to further help you along with the learning process, which is a great bonus for anyone trying to learn a new language.
The stories are brilliant in learning phrasing since it helps to put the wordsin a more natural sentence then simple word learning.
Overall I like this idea to learn a language better since it don't just teach the simple words, but the phrasing and content as well, which is very important in a conversation.
