Last Sync Freebie

FREE two powerful YA audiobooks: National Book Award honoree Sold by Patricia McCormick & Let Me Stand Alone: The Journals of Rachel Corrie, the focus of a “Voicing a Cause” interview with narrator Tavia Gilbert. Both of these amazing audios would make terrific conversation starters for classrooms or family discussions about tough issues, such as American activist Corrie’s death while trying to block the demolition of a Palestinian family’s home in the Gaza Strip or McCormick’s sensitive free verse novel about a young Nepalese girl sold into human tracking in India. This week’s free downloads are the final selections in this year’s SYNC promotion – a collaborative effort of audiobook producers to provide free audios to young listeners all summer long. If you’ve enjoyed the SYNC downloads, please take time to provide any requested feedback, so that SYNC continues to be a yearly affair!
