Doon by Corp & Langdon

Loosely based on the musical Brigadoon.  It's a fun read if you are looking for magical teen romance.

The Cardturner by Louis Sachar

This is an unusual book.  It's basically about bridge.  Now having said that, if you look past the game of bridge, it's a great story.  It's not an easy story to get into because there is lots of information about bridge.  If you like bridge.... great.  If you don't,  just skip the bridge parts.

Bossypants by Tina Fey

Tina Fey makes me laugh.  I thank her for this gift.  It's a lovely treat to hear her read her book.  Wait, is she really reading her book or is she just recalling what she wrote?  Hmmm.  Either way, a great book to enjoy.  oh wait ... yes I know it's still not Young Adult or Children's Literature but sometimes it's just fun to read someone's life story.

If You Ask Me by Betty White

Okay so it's not Young Adult or even Children's Lit but who doesn't love the childlike spirit of impishness of Betty White.  Seriously, hear her audio books.  It's lovely to hear.  Thanks Betty!

The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury

This book is read in many high schools.  I hadn't read it until this month.  Actually, I listed to it using an audiobook.  It's smartly written and the stories are well crafted.

Odd and the Frost Giant by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman knows how to tell a story.  Love the adventure and how Loki get's everyone into trouble.

Under the Jolly Roger by L A Meyer

It's a treat to hear the audio book.  The actress brings each
character to life.  Great fun and also some serious dangers.
And of course a love interest involved.  A must read!

Bloody Jacky: Curse of the Blue Tattoo by L A Meyer

This is a great series to read.  I'm listening to the series audio books and what a treat.  The actress reading the books really brings each character to life.  This is a great addiction.  Looking forward to reading the whole series.  I would love to meet the author.
