New Audiobooks

Perfect for an end-of-summer-break road trip! Some of these new teen audiobooks are on CD and some are on Playaway, which are small media players pre-loaded with an entire audio book. Check these out!


Always and forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
While helping plan her father’s wedding, senior Lara Jean struggles with choosing a college and questions how graduation is going to change her relationship with her boyfriend Peter.

Bang by Barry Lyga
Sebastian Cody did something horrible, something no one, not even Sebastian himself, can forgive. At the age of four, he accidentally shot and killed his infant sister with his father’s gun. Now, ten years later, Sebastian can’t live with the guilt. It took a gun to get him into this. Now he needs a gun to get out.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over. But this year, her invitation finally arrives. Only, as soon as they arrive, Scarlett’s sister Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind, and she must be found or disappear forever.
Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner
Carver Briggs never thought a simple text would cause a fatal crash, killing his three best friends, Mars, Eli, and Blake. But now Carver can’t stop blaming himself for the accident.
