We come to our third week of AudiobookSYNC 2017 with two audiobooks celebrating teens who speak from the heart. Poetry and diaries both cut to the essence of what we need to say, and the voices teens can hear this week may inspire the articulation of their own feelings, thoughts, and concerns. Both of these audiobooks are short, offering good listening introductions for those new to the audio format.

During Week 12, we meet a pair of 20th century African headliners who changed the world forever. Both became world renowned while still active in transforming how we understand the world and the legacies of both continue to inform the possibilities that emerge on every continent.
Adventurous, full of bravado, self-centered: is this really what teenaged boys are made of? In this week’s pair of free audiobooks, we meet a couple of teenaged boys who are also reflective, secretly sensitive, and clearly aware of the real shortcomings of the adults surrounding them.
