Week 4 Enchantment and Empathic Emotion

Written by Michele Cobb on Tuesday, May 26, 2015

AudioFile editors get to listen to new audiobooks all year long, and as we listen, we often note special recordings that would make excellent additions to SYNC. We also review the many reading lists, published by schools and public libraries, with their suggestions of titles teens would enjoy. By noticing shared themes between these two sources we discovered this week's likely pair.

Thanks!
