Our big guide to choosing each year's AudiobookSYNC Audiobooks for Teen Listeners is the feedback we hear from you after each season.
James Weldon Johnson’s 1912 novel offers us an opportunity to talk about how identity, in contemporary America, continues to elicit an array of strong feelings, public messages that may conflict with private behaviors, and awareness of differences between the identities we apply to ourselves, and those applied to us by others. We hope that you consider hosting a discussion of this audiobook after you and the group you host have the opportunity to listen to it.

With the relaunch of our website providing the toolkit with information on pairings and dates, you already know we have two more titles to announce here. And we have more information to tell you about in this post as well!
We are rich with award winning titles this year, including ON THE JELLICOE ROAD, by Melina Marchetta, an Australian novelist who is both popular and the subject of praise from critics, teachers, and even kids who haven't much cared for reading before meeting her characters.
As we look for audiobooks that offer both great stories and excellent narration, we realize that, each year, we have even more possibilities to consider. And that's great news for everyone!

SYNC provides a pair of audiobooks each week during the summer, with one being something very new for teen listeners and in publishing generally, with the second being a classic and/or something of high interest to secondary school students.
