The pair of audiobooks offered by AudiobookSYNC this fifth week features characters who have been required to conform to identities chosen for them. Many teens have felt this put-upon sense that conflicts with self-identity, although usually they are caught in less extreme circumstances than the young adults we meet here. Listening to these audios, then, can awaken both empathy for others and insight about.the difference between relying on social pressures to conform and recognizing one's own identity as essentially one's own responsibility.

AudiobookSYNC is committed to offering teens all along the age spectrum some great summer listening. Since potential SYNC participants range from the early teens of middle school through graduating high school students, we work to include audiobooks that include some that speak to all, some skewing to the higher end of the teen range, and some to the lower.
