Road Trip Reads: Audiobook Recommendations for Teens


Road trips can be grueling for teens. For something exciting to listen to, and to prevent compulsive radio channel surfing, check out one of the following unique audiobooks, available on CD from CADL’s collection.

If I Stay by Gayle Foreman: Cello music plays an important role in this story, and also adds punch to the audiobook.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: The two main characters in this story are presented by dual narrators in the audiobook version.

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak: This story is littered with German words, which come across wonderfully in the book on CD.

Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison:  Not only is this story hilarious, the audio version is read with a British accent.

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot: This story is narrated by Anne Hathaway, who played Mia in the movie.
