After falling off the wagon and becoming what he so clearly and strongly resisted, a consumer, Josh Swenson (aka: Larry) finds himself in a hyper-paranoid state of no return. That is, until he is kidnapped and coaxed back into resurfacing as his old persona. Before long, Larry is back on the scene with much more on his mind that a gospel Web site; this time Larry wants to effect change in government. What starts out as a small campaign to get the younger population to vote turns into a run for the presidency. Can Larry really take on George Bush? In this very smart, very witty novel, Janet Tashjian brings the political world to the forefront and exposes it from many different points of view. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jesse Eisenberg.

Josh Swensen is not your average 17-year-old. At the age of two, he was figuring out algebraic equations with colored magnetic numbers. He is a prodigy who only wants to make the world a better place. Josh´s wish comes true when his virtual alter ego, Larry, becomes a huge media sensation. Larry has his own Web site where he posts sermons on anti-consumerism and has a large following of adults and teens. Meanwhile, Larry´s identity is a mystery to everyone. While it seems as if the whole world is trying to figure out Larry´s true identity, Josh feels trapped inside his own creation. What will happen to the world, and to Larry, if he is exposed? 1.

The 2009 Disney/Pixar movie Up is an animated film and, therefore, was able to take liberties with the truth pretty easily. That´s good, because the film´s premise centers on the travels of Carl Fredricksen, a 78-year-old widower who ties tens of thousands of helium balloons to his house and, as the title suggests, goes up into the sky. The flight of Mr. Fredricksen is as fictional as it gets. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Giovannie Cruz. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/aq/a045/000053/aq_a045_000053_sample.mp3.

Larry enjoyed raising cattle on his Kansas farm, until the aliens arrived. He couldn´t help himself; he was going for a ride with aliens from outer space! The aliens wouldn´t tell him where he was going, how long he would be gone, or if he was ever coming back, but a space trip sounded like more fun than beer and burgers at Benny´s Been There and Done That Bar and Grill. He had to go. Larry´s ride into deep space wasn´t just a Sunday jaunt. This space-faring species was in danger of being wiped off the galactic map. They offered Larry a ride because his assistance was vital to their survival, but they were xenophobic to the point of barely tolerating Larry in the same room. He was willing to help, but what could he do? Could he live long enough to save himself? What skills did Larry have to save an alien species threatened with annihilation? Every time he asked them for information, they stonewalled him. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Doug Tisdale, Jr.. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/056402/bk_acx0_056402_sample.mp3.
