Need a new audiobook? It’s a Mystery!

Booklist blogs have been abuzz with notice about recent mystery award winners. I want to give a shout-out to great audiobook editions of the top children’s & YA prize winners:

Likely Stories announced the Edgar Awards youth winners:

Best Juvenile The Postcard, by Tony Abbott, audiobook from Listening Library

Best Young Adult Paper Towns, by John Green, audiobook from Brilliance Audio

Book Group Buzz posted about the Agatha Awards, with the Children’s/Young Adult winner:

The Crossoads by Chris Grabenstein, audiobook from Listening Library

Intermediate readers grades 3 and up (and their families!) will love to have The Crossroads or The Postcard audiobook playing during the next car trip.

Teens will love former Booklist staff member & Nerdfighter John Green’s Paper Towns – watch his commentary on making the audiobook of Paper Towns here:
