Schooled

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Thursday, June 27, 2019
This week our audiobooks offer a couple of contemporary high school stories. In keeping with that theme, expect characters who experience self-consciousness, make assumptions about others around them, and take leadership roles among their peers even when those peers might not have looked to them in particular to move others toward change.

The Secret Story Within

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Thursday, June 13, 2019
This week we’ve paired fiction and nonfiction, both of which will appeal to anyone who is curious about what happens out of view. Thank you to Candlewick on Brilliance and to Tantor Audio for these contributions to SYNC.

And We’re Live in 2019!

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Thursday, April 25, 2019
Welcome to SYNC’s 10th season of free audiobooks for teen listeners! We’re kicking off the collection with two titles about edgy friendships, both by well known authors whose characters will remind you of people you know—maybe even yourself.

A First Peek at SYNC 2019

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Thursday, January 10, 2019
This year marks the 10th anniversary of AudiobookSYNC and our publishers are celebrating by offering a wide range of free audiobooks to build your personal listening shelf. In the coming weeks, we'll introduce the titles publisher by publisher (as soon as all the contracts are completed!). Today, however, we can give you a lot of details to feed your own and your teen listeners' anticipation.

Overlooked Heroines

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Thursday, July 5, 2018
This week’s pair of audiobooks gives listeners excellent opportunities to challenge themselves to see beyond assumptions that some girls just can’t be worth meeting.

Juneteenth Listening

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Thursday, June 14, 2018
The Juneteenth holiday is just the right time for the pair of audiobooks we offer this week. The last day to download the pair is Juneteenth itself, so you have seven days to be sure you have them, and even have time to get some listening done to give the date more meaning in your own life. The occasion of Juneteenth, dating from 1865, is a good time to celebrate both freedom and equal rights.

Stories with Histories

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Thursday, April 26, 2018
Week 1 of our 2018 season is here! Both titles of our first week’s audiobook pair offer fiction rooted in history with which teens are familiar and arrive with author and narrator names many will recognize. What better way to introduce the new season?

Thanks!
