It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished Teenage Diaries: Then and Now by Radio Diaries.  This audiobook is part of the free Audiobook Sync 16 weeks summer series.  These stories were put together by NPR.  They had 30 hours of recording and narrowed it down to create this audiobook.  It's like listening to one of their podcasts or their radio shows.

Being a teenage is hard.  Listening to these teens' life stories reminded me some lives are much harder than others.

I started listening to Bronx Masquerade by Nikki Grimes.  It's also part of the free Audiobook Sync summer series.  The story is set up like a poetry slam.   Random high school students with different backgrounds, different races and different problems join a poetry reading type club.  They learn about each other and form a bound no one expected.
