Voice Lessons is the story of one younger sister growing up in the shadow of a larger-than-life older sister - looking up to her, wondering how they were alike and how they were different, and ultimately learning how to live her own life and speak in her own voice on her own terms. Voice Lessons is the story of sisters - sisters with pigtails, sisters with boyfriends and broken hearts, sisters as mothers and aunts, sisters as teachers and ice queens, sisters as allies and confidantes.

before I get into this review let it be known am a huge Rent and Wicked fan as a native New Yorker myself when I was listening to this book from Cara's perspective I couldn't help but think of the dynamic between Glinda and Elphaba or Maureen Johnson and Joanne Jefferson in that both characters are relateable in ways that their relationship mirrors cara and idina in that idina is this big star but she remembers her sister and gives support to cara in a way that only two sisters can I don't mean to spoil this book just a hair but when cara was going threw a big change in her life Idina bought her a house but that is how sisters or brothers should act towards one another. I highly recommend this book to read weather or not you have a sibling or not.

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York.

I Am Malala is worth the money and the listening time
because this REMARKABLE young lady stood up against something so horrible FOR THE RIGHT TO BE EMPOWERED to quote from Miss.Yousafzai's United Nations speech that she gave on July 12, 2013 " So let us wage a glorious struggle against illiteracy, poverty and terrorism, let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first"
I applaud Malala may she be the face of education around the world

Tristan Moreau loves his job as chief administrative officer and personal assistant to Webber Kincaid, President, Chairman, and CEO of Kincaid International. It would be the perfect job...if only he hadn't fallen in love with his boss as well as the work. After two years, he's still doing everything in his power to keep his feelings hidden-mostly because he wants to protect the reputation of his famous boss but also because he wants to keep his job.

Since 9/11, Brooklyn firefighter Griff Muir has wrestled with impossible feelings for his best friend and partner at Ladder 181, Dante Anastagio. Unfortunately, Dante is strictly a ladies’ man, and the FDNY isn’t exactly gay-friendly. For ten years, Griff has hidden his heart in a half-life of public heroics and private anguish. Griff’s caution and Dante’s cockiness make them an unbeatable team. To protect his buddy, there’s nothing Griff wouldn’t do… until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty.

in ways that the main character James Bryant is exactly like me minus the boyfriend and sex

Skip thought he had it all: the fabulous husband, the great apartment, and the teaching job he'd always wanted. Even the cat was perfect. When his partner of eight years decides he wants something else-something that doesn't involve Skip or the apartment or even the cat-Skip decides it's time to go home to the other side of the country. However, Skip's hometown doesn't just hold a loving meddling mother but also the memories of his awkward crush on a boy he met his senior year in high school.
