Week 11 of AudiobookSYNC 2017 presents friendships that require work to create and to maintain.
Jyotsna Hariharan’s audio drama Rebuttal features two high school students who go from being competitors to being teammates. The cast supplies authentic voices for each of the characters, including the success-driven teens, a pair of Indian-American parents, and the adult debate announcer who sometimes has to serve as referee between the accidental teammates. Ambient auditory enhancements, including buzzers, footsteps, and closing doors, all make this easy for new audio readers to become immersed and sustain interest.
Ashley Royer’s novel Remember to Forget is about a mute teen who has been sent from his home in Australia to his father’s American household in the hopes that a change in scenery will help with his depression.
At a time in life when friendships made and broken seem like the most important thing in the world, teens can both enjoy and relate to these listens.
