We Set the Dark on Fire
Narrated by Kyla Garcia / 9 hours 53 minutes
“Tehlor Kay Mejia's imaginative LGBTQ YA debut fantasy starts in mythology and ends in open rebellion. In between she builds a culture we know deeply without knowing at all, and characters trapped in consequences of old choices and trying to invent new ones. While the latter speaks to the novel's appeal to YA readers, the former also pulls in adult fantasy fans. That the story's fantasy world is Latinx adds to its complexity - for some readers this will make the world more haunting in its strangeness while for others it will be more haunting in its familiarity. Kyle Garcia's narration is exactly right. A great summer road trip listen!”Elliott, Big Blue Marble Bookstore

The story of 3 friends trying to get a record deal for their murdered best friend & brother was strained in parts but the desire to see the outcome & my enjoyment of the characters carried me through.”Rachael , Books Inc.
By Tahereh Mafi
Narrated by Bronson Pinchot / 7 hours 5 minutes
“Whichwood is a darkly whimsical tale with a Persian flair involving magical worlds, ghostly pests, and a lonely young mortician. It is lyrical and fans of Miyazaki and Tim Burton will enjoy it immensely. The narrator is what really makes this audio book special! Whichwood is a companion book, but it isn't necessary to have read or listened to the first book (Furthermore) if this story has grabbed you and only listening to it RIGHT NOW will satisfy the itch.”Kate, Bank Square Books

The Downstairs Girl
By Stacey Lee

“I never expected to love The Downstairs Girl as much as I did. This book has it all - love, romance, family secrets, and a delightful, well-crafted story. It takes place in Atlanta in 1890 and Jo is the lovable protagonist who works as a ladies maid by day and an undercover advice columnist by night. The writing was the star of this lovely story. The words and Southern expressions were music to my ears. I highly recommend this witty, insightful, cleverly-written book. The narration was nothing less than brilliant.”Melinda, Buttonwood Books and Toys
