For fans of Gillian Flynn´s Dark Places and Sara Shepard´s Pretty Little Liars, The Darkest Corners is a psychological thriller about the lies little girls tell - and the deadly truths those lies become. There are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about it after what happened there that last summer. Memories of things so dark will burn themselves into your mind if you let them. Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn´t have to walk those same halls, but then Callie always was the stronger one. She can handle staring into the faces of her demons - and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they´ll disappear for good. Tessa and Callie have never talked about what they saw that night. After the trial Callie drifted, and Tessa moved, and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch. But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette - to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie´s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth. Only the closer Tessa gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer - and this time it won´t be so easy to run away. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jorjeana Marie.

Every time that he went out for his daily walk, Derry had to pass the corner where old Jim sat on his orange box. And every time he lingered there in the hope of a story. For Jim was a sailor who had grown too old for the sea, but who never tired of telling of the adventures he had had on the good ship Rocking Horse, under brave Captain Potts. And Derry would listen; hanging on the old sea dog´s every word. Eight sea stories from best-selling author Eleanor Farjeon. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Hordern.

The middle-grade memoir of a girl boxer and future Olympian. In this Lean In-style inspirational memoir, 12-year-old Jesselyn Silva offers a ringside seat to girl power and what it takes to win in the ring and in life: punch by punch. My Corner of the Ring shows kids what it means to be true to yourself and stick with your dreams even when facing adversity and ridicule. Supported by her single dad, Jesselyn (JessZilla in the ring) first donned her boxing gloves at seven years of age, making her one of very few female boxers in the country. My Corner of the Ring charts Jesselyn´s oft-times exhilarating and heartbreaking journey to success in a male-dominated sport where she struggles to find partners to spar with and combats the viewpoint that no one wants to see a girl fight. Despite an inhospitable environment, Jesselyn still has her sights set on the Olympics. With the help of her dad, Pedro, who has instilled in her a strong work ethic, she just might make it. It is an exciting and motivational listen that will provide kids with the roadmap and encouragement to accomplish whatever goals they set for themselves. Jesselyn´s positive can-do attitude and determination make this a must-listen. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jesselyn Silva.

Four Corners is a bare-knuckled debut novel in the style of Daniel Woodrell, Barry Hannah, and Charles Bowden. Both a savage, mean-streets thriller and a heartbreaking story of unfortunate love, Four Corners is carved from the rich, distinct voices and landscapes of the American Southwest. It manages to be brutal and beautiful at the same time. For the better part of thirty-seven years, Frank Bruce has hobbled through his life, dragging his hunger for amphetamines, alcohol, and crime behind him like a heap of tarnished weight. Now, emboldened by the love of his child-fiancé Maddie Nicole, Frank turns his back on all his addictions and runs away from New Mexico hoping for a second chance. Frank goes on the lam through the drug underworld of the Southwest trying to save Sean from his meth-riddled father and Machiavellian grandfather, the casino mogul Marcus Shenk, whose brutal tyranny crosses over all four corners of the southwest. Trapped by his crooked past, but determined to protect everything he loves, Frank looks for help from his onetime mentor, drug kingpin and murderer Jon Santer. But in doing so, Frank unknowingly drags himself and all that he is trying to keep safe into a final, vile reckoning with Shenk, his henchmen, and his terrible, corrupt legacy. 1. Language: English.
