Listening To YA

If your family is like ours, we spend half our time in the car driving to our next obligation. Audiobooks are a fantastic way to "read" even on those days when your family is in perpetual transit. Normally we opt for unabridged narration, but here are a few of our teens' favorites by Full Cast Audio. They do full justice to the text and are a pleasure, be it on the first, or fifteenth time around.

Cyrano, Geraldine McCaughrean's brilliant adaptation
of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac

Disappearing Act, by Sid Fleischman

The Goose Girl, by Shannon Hale

And just to prove why I generally prefer narration to performance, try The Graveyard Book, narrated by the author.
