This Week’s Audiobooks:
Available to download free June 11 – June 17
By Matt de la Peña
Read by Henry Leyva
Published by Brilliance AudioShy takes the summer job to make some money. A few months on a luxury cruise liner — how bad can it be? Bikinis, free food, maybe even a girl or two… there’s always going to be a fresh crop of passengers, after all. He’ll rake in the tips and be able to help his mom with the bills. But then an earthquake more massive than any ever recorded hits California, and Shy’s life is changed forever.
“As Shy, a Mexican–American crew member, reels from one disaster to the next, narrator Henry Leyva excels at dialogue. He brings to life the voices of the crew and passengers aboard the luxury liner, highlighting for listeners de la Peña’s provocative exploration of class tensions and making them care when lives are lost.”

A True Story of Men Against the Sea
By Sebastian Junger
Read by Richard M. Davidson

As Captain Billy Tyne steers his 72-foot longboat Andrea Gail toward the Grand Banks, growing weather fronts are moving toward the same waters. The Andrea Gail is sailing into the storm of the century, one with 100-mile-per-hour winds and waves cresting over 110 feet.
“Narrator Richard M. Davidson’s deep, authoritative voice effectively captures the book’s mood, and his diction and tone allow listeners to easily follow all of the action. – AudioFile Magazine
