Categories: Audiobook Library

We're in the hot, sticky dog days of summer, but Learning Ally has your boredom-buster covered with plenty of awesome pool-side reads! These are a few of the new high-quality books we've added to our library this month, all have the VOICEtext feature (the words are highlighted as you read): A Girl Called Fearless Book CoverA Girl Called Fearless By: Catherine Linka Age Range: High School Avie Reveare has the normal life of a privileged teen growing up in L.A., at least as normal as any girl's life is these days. After a synthetic hormone in beef killed fifty million American women ten years ago, only young girls, old women, men, and boys are left to pick up the pieces. The death threat is past, but fathers still fear for their daughters' safety, and the Paternalist Movement, begun to "protect" young women, is taking over the choices they make. Here's Hank Book CoverFake Snakes and Weird Wizards By: Henry Winkler Age Range: Elementary Hank’s sister Emily wants Ralph’s Reptile Show to perform at her birthday party more than anything, but Ralph is booked solid. So Hank comes up with a plan: he’ll disguise himself as a magician called The Westside Wizard and pull a snake from thin air! But when Hank’s true identity is revealed during his performance, his good deed might just turn into a huge disaster. Raising Dragons Book CoverRaising Dragons By: Bryan Davis Age Range: Middle School The kids at school call Billy "Dragon Breath" for good reason. His breath is bad! It isn't the normal, morning-mouth bad; it's the hot-as-fire, "don't-you-dare-get-near-me" bad. Trouble erupts when his hot breath sets off the fire sprinklers in the boys' restroom at school, and his parents learn that they've kept their secret for too long. Billy finally discovers the secret. His father was once a dragon! Who Was Blackbeard Book CoverWho Was Blackbeard?  By: James Buckley Age Range: Elementary/Middle School Though much of his early life remains a mystery, Blackbeard most likely began his life as Edward Teach in the sailing port of Bristol, England. He began his career as a hired British sailor during Queen Anne's War. He eventually settled in the Bahamas under Captain Benjamin Hornigold who taught the young sailor to go "a-pirating." Twice Upon a Time Book CoverTwice Upon a Time By: James Riley Age Range: Middle School Jack and May are back for another adventure in the world of fairy tales with a twist. Now that they know about May's grandmother's real intentions, they're on the hunt to learn May's true identity.
